Very windy & stormy, but not rainy.

Waked at 5 ― & did pages of Greek ― till 7. ― After breakfast worked at “endeavours” to complete the Corfu; but although a portion gets finished ― the rest, at 4 P.M. seemed less so than ever. ― Ann’s letter is interesting: she & I both think all the Streets will return together. The Newsoms are to come to Hastings to day.

Letters from
Mrs. Scrivens
& Ann.

Eyes, heart, mind, head, body ― all bad ―: so at 4 I walked to Hastings & over the East Hill nearly to Ecclesbourne, ― returning by 7 to dine. It’s a weariness ― doubtless: & for what? & until when?
