A long walk alone ― to the needles: day very lovely. I irritable.

Afterwards, lunch: & then all of us to Mrs. Cameron’s: ― sang ― & much applause. Later F. & I walked alone.

Returning, found that wonderful Mrs. C. had sent a grand Piano!

Dinner more pleasant.

AT’s discourses on criticism ― alas!

At 9½ or 10 ― Mrs. C. ― Miss Perry, & Prinseps came, & I sang to 12½.
