Wednesday, 4 January 1865

Downcast.

Rose at 7. Worked at the drawings ― the Tyrants ― till 3.

Day perfectly bright & lovely throughout.

Called on Mrs. Reilly ― a kind old lady. And walked up to Cimies.[1] The view from the Convent is wide ― but hardly beautiful.

Returning, found a very kind letter from Thomson-Hankey ― with a wish to have some drawings ― & to pay 20£ now. ―

Dined well. Heard G. read.

Penned out, 4 drawings. ―


[1] Cimiez, a district of Nice.
