Sent letters to S.W. Clowes, Mr. Edwards & W. Nevill.


Pouring rain all day. & very dark.

Kitchen flooded with water.

Worked as much as I could at Clive’s dead sea, &c. ― but that very little.

Maj.r Reynolds came & asked me to dine, but I said no. I sate a bit at 4, with P. Williams, & at 5 with the Macbeans.

Came home: dined alone: & wrote to S.W.C.
