Friday, 10 March 1865

Quite lovely all day ― blowing ― bright, clear, & not cold. ― Rose at 6 or 6.15 ― &was at work by 7. ― thence till 9 ― ― & from 10 ― to 5 ― & from 8 to 10 ― eleven hours in all, ― & I say this won’t do: you will have all sorts of illness. So, at all hazards give it up.

Only letter ― from Mr. Frankland ― wishing for a drawing ― to give Swinton on his marriage with Lady De Kos’s daughter.

Indigestion & misery ―

X2

At 5.30 ― went to Dr. Deakin’s & sat there till 6. One turn on the Promenade ― & back at 6.35 to dine.

Penned out from 8 to 10, beginning the Nice drawings.

Looked at G.’s writing ― & bed at 10.30.
