Wednesday, 8 February 1865


Rose at 6.45. Breakfast 8.30.

Went to Victoria Hotel, & saw the Gussie & Wally ― who afterwards walked to my rooms here.

(Richard has gone back to England: ― Emma is very ill still. ―)

Drove about with them afterwards, & from 1 to 4 wrote letters of introduction for them to Rome, & notes. At 4 ― walked & sate with Gussie who is by no means strong enough for this journey.

At 6. Dined at the table d’hôte (paying 7.50 ^[cent] for my own dinner,) & sate with poor little Gussie till 8.30.

Home ― & bed: tired. ―

Lovely day, but colder.
