Friday, 2 February 1865

Fine ― as usual all day ― & wonderful winter climate ― whatever drawbacks else as Nice.

Rose before 7 ― & before 9 finished the last small drawings I intend to do.

After breakfast, came paper, with letters from
Ellen ―
T.G. Baring ―
Lady Goldsmid ― &
T. Cooper, enclosing one from Underhill,
& bills of the
Wine merchant, & a

Receipt for Income tax ― (see January 22nd). Pleased & cheerful. Wrote to E. Baring & C.F. Worked at a Mt. Sinai drawing.

At 3.30 ― came Somerset ― (alone,) & young Leycester ― a nice lad.

At 5 ― called on Mrs. Smith-Barry ― Fitz’s wife is better. At 6.30 dined

G. in the sulx ― wh. is a bore ― & I really do think he had better leave me, if one can only find some way of living for him.

Bed at 10 ― 10.30.
