Sent letters to F.L.Col. Hornby ― & T.G. Baring.

Letters from Col. Hornby & F.L.

A very “degrading” day: most beezly! ― violent pouring rain & wind all day long.

Kitchen, full of water. Day so dark no work was possible.

A short note from F.L. ― & a letter from Col. Hornby enclosed, ― & a bill from B. & Bush.

Worried & raved all day at these shit-begotten Roman filths, who make me pay 90 dollars a quarter & will do nothing for my comfort.

Dined alone.

Penned out a Lebanon drawing. ―
