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.
