Wednesday, 8 March 1865

Quite fine & bright, but colder considerably.

Rose 6.30.

Began to work 7.15 ― & worked till 9. After breakfast ― I wrote to J. Cross, & Mrs. Robinson. Worked ― at 160 Tyrants ― but suddenly


Very unexpected. ―

Worked again till 3.30 ― when Mrs. Beaumont came & bought a drawing.

Worked on till 5.30 ―completing the 4th process to 20 more Tyrants ― now 60 so far advanced.

Did not go out at all.

Dined at 6.30.

Penned out ―

& looked at G.’s writing ― & so at 10. 9.30 to bed.

No letter from Nicola today ― as was expected, whereby, & owing to accounts of Corfû “sturbi”[1] ― G. (as well as am also I,) is put out.

20 of the Tyrants done 4th process ― 60 in all.

[1] “Disturbi,” i.e. “disturbances.”
