Perfectly bright & blue all day ― but still colder. Wind comes (Mistral?) at 2 ― 4 ― & makes a fuss. ― I can’t go out without a cloak, & the Bath water is colder today than since I have been here.
No letters ― but Gussies last book ― Echoes of an old bell. ― sent by Emma Parkyns.
Did not work early ― (except from 7.30 to 9 ―) because I wrote to T. Cooper & Underhill, & Tarrant, & Dickenson ― the last with 160 Tyrant=titles. Worked thence till 5. Then, posted letters ― & called on Mrs. Beaumont ― a well-bred kindly really nice lady.
Home by 6.30.
Dined. Soup ― hash mutton: olives. ―
And penned out till 10.30 ― 2 large Corniche drawings. Overlooked G.’s writing.
