Rose 6.40. Perfectly fine all day.

Worked at the Tyrants till 5. No one came.

Called to know if the Bethells had come, & found they had telegraphed to say they were coming to night. Came home before 6 ― but found G. out, & had to dress [in] the dark. When he came in, wrote to Gussie: & at 6.30 ― went to Chateau St. Laurent. Nearly full moon ― so could walk.

Lady Grey too unwell to come. Dinner pleasant & quiet ― only the parson.


Pleasant quiet evening.

Home by 10.

Found a note from Gussie; ―

G. who was lying down seemed queer & stupefied ― & said there was none, till I showed him this. Then going back, he had not put out his light, & were he not so habitually sober, I should say he is not so.
