Cold ― but fine.

Daddy Hunt, & Grove of the Crystal Palace came to breakfast. The latter I had not known before: & I think him a very nice fellow. H.H. likes my pictures.

Also E. & R. Martineau came.

At 2 H.H. & I walked to W. Rosetti’s [sic], who walked with us 2 to Maddox Brown [sic] in [Kental] Town. His picture of “Work” ― a landscape in Essex ― & another painting was all really true & fine: ― after all he is the real first P.R.B. ―

I came away alone at 4.15 & called on Rimbault, who says the 4 songs are to be out ― if we agree with Chappell ― by December.

Then I came home to tea ― & afterwards wrote to Baring, Mrs. Sayer, &c. &c.
