Saturday, 25 February

Very cloudy & windy all day ― in gusts: & at 4 ― 4.30 ― a quarter of an hour of rain drops ― 50 in all, ― much for this dry place. However, it is doubtful if one can get out of Brighton tomorrow.

Worked all day ― (my neck is becoming really crooked,) at the Tyrants: ― & I don’t know if they are well or otherwise done as yet.

Letter from Cromek ― who is better: ― At 3.30 came little Vladímir Golonoise (?) the little Russian boy of Sunday last, & his Finn Tutor: very pleasant specimens of those worlds.

Walked out at 5.30 to post letters to Mrs. Hunt, C. Fortescue, & Dickenson: & called on Mrs. Smith-Barry: which that visit was not pleasant: she lives with & talks of Princesses μόνον.[1]

Dined at 6.30. Cold Turkey ― & afterwards penned out till 10.30. Heard G. read.

The sea roars. Doubtful weather.

[1] Only.
