Slept extreme. Rose at 7.15.

Accounts ― after breakfast & then worked all day at Tyrants ― stopping to write a most absurd lot of stories for the little F.’s ― & also to write to Mrs. Clive, from whom came a letter ― sad enough ― about H. Mildmay’s illness.

Ἥλθε κανεῖς.[1]

& at 5 I went out. The coldest day yet here ― for I had to wear gloves for the first time ― a test. To Mrs. Smith Barry ― where I sate & talked nonsense & sang.

Home by 6.30.


Heard G. read.

Penned out till 10.30 ― up to the Finale drawings. ―

Bed at 11.

[1] Nobody came.
