Tuesday, 14 March 1865

Cloudy early ― & colder afterwards, ― a thoroughly disagreable chilly day.

Rose at 6.30 ― & worked before breakfast at the last 20 of the 4th process.

Breakfast ― & then letters from Gussie ― (who is at Rome,) J.B. Harford ― very kindly ―: & Mrs. Digby-Wyatt ― delightful.

Wrote to J.B.H. & to Fairbairn (enclosing one to Daddy, ―) & to W. Lushington, ― & later to Mrs. Digby-Wyatt.

Worked off & on, but unwell & chilly ― till 5: ― finishing more or less the 4th process of the 160 Tyrants.

Nearly at 5 came Mr. Frankland & Lady De Kos, Mr. Frankland choosing a Nice drawing as a wedding present to Swinton & Miss De Kos. ― quaint.

I had written to J.B.H. that I would come if possible & breakfast there tomorrow: ― but the weather is very nasty & cloudy & cold. At 5.30 ― posted letters, & ‘left a card’ ― & also my long name at the Φιτζουίλλιαμς. Returned to dine at 6.30[.]

Angry at finding I had only 3fr. & G. 1 ― so that the Cannes journey is knocked up, it seems me. Penned out till 10. ―
