T. Fairbairn. ―
Slept well. Fine day by a great luck. ―
This house is most beautiful. Holman Hunt & other pictures. Unpacked the Petra ― which to my delight ― F. (who is alone here,) likes greatly ― & keeps. ―
May I be thankful by acts.
Wrote all day long ― letters to 18 people. At 4½ T.F. came in & we sang & talked till 6½.
Dinner excellent: evening & society all pleasant. Ate too much though.
