Gloomy all day ― but no rain till 5.

W.F. Beadon breakfasted with me.

Cab to Drummond’s ― to Tennysons ― & to C. Fortescue ― & home.

Ann came ― & we passed a very tranquil quiet day.

W. Nevill came & Milnwood ―& Sir J.C. Jervoise.

Later ― J.B. Edwards.

At 7 dined with W.F. Beadon, ― pleasant, ― but I cannot see hope of his living long.

ειπε, δια την Αρχοντισσην Φρανσες Ουαλδιγραιφε, αυτην να ειναι πολυ πτω λην ― και να ζητηση, να δανειση, Χρηματα αω ολους. ― Δεν εξευρω εαν ειναι αληθεια ― ταυτα, ― φλυαρια.1

  1. Beadon said something about Lady Waldegrave being in debt, having borrowed all her money, but Lear does not know whether this is true. []
