Certainly a fearful day. The noise maddens me. One blessing ― a letter from Γεώργις ― best of fellows. ―― Slept, very unwell, & depressed dreadfully. Dickenson came ― but I do not know what orders to give him.
And the Rev. A. Isaacs ― who looked at drawings till 4½. ― Then I went to H. Hunt’s ― where was one Monck ― very mad. ―

Dined there. Gave up the Hogarth Club.

Walked home; most wretched.
