Tuesday, 7 March 1865

Rain all night: cloudy morning: but clearing ― & at noon ― as bright & beautiful as ever.

Worked frightfully ― from 7.30 to 9 ― & from 10 till 5. But there is no medium ― work ― or no work.

Letter from W. Lushington. The dear old Judge is again better. ― Vernon married, & Godfrey engaged to Miss (Octavius) Smith. W.L.’s letter is really nice.

Wrote to Miss Duncan, & J.B. Harford.

At 5.30. ― half stupid with work, called on the Deakins who had sent me the Galignanis[1] of the 3rd 4th & 5th.

In those were printed 2 deaths.
A.A. Mieville of Bedford days aged 81.
Edmund G. Hornby of Dalton … 68.

Certainly ― the world one knew is fast going away. Poor Mrs. Edmund!

A turn on the Promenade ― colder. ― Yet I have left off fires in my north room for a week or more.

Dined at 6.45. & penned out till 10’ ― 3 more Corniche drawings only to do ― & heard G. read. ― Bed ― 10.30.
