Thursday, 2 March 1865

Same astonishing clear weather. Without doubt I have never seen any such climate as this, for winter wear.

Rose at 6.30 ― & before 7.30 at work.

Finished the 3rd process of the drawings already begun ― (155 ―) & went on with the remaining 6, till 5. P.M.

No letters: some error: τουλάχιζον[1] there should have been a newspaper.

Wrote a sort of essay on foregrounds for Lady F. Fitzwilliam.

No one came.

So at 5.30 ― took my letter to Chateau St. Laurent, ― & also one to Mrs. Saltmarshe & one to Mr. Frankland.

Dined at 6.35. ―

Heard D. read & set him a copy & penned out till 10.30.

Absolutely all the December Corniche drawings ― excepting 10 are penned out!

[1] At least (τουλάχιστον).
