Rose before 6. Penned out till 8. ― Fine early ― but as usual cloud & rain after 12.
Letter from Emmy Penrhyn.
Deadly “low spirits” ― but I worked at the Nuneham Church-field picture & at Cedar Lebanon sketches all day off & on. W.N. came at 2: always pleasant & good. Then I took leave of Gush, who goes to America on Saturday. ― Certainly these are most comfortable lodgings.
At 5.30 ― to Egg’s ― 6.30 dinner.
Mrs. Egg: ―――
Dinner & wines very good. ―
We staid till 11.15. Then W.C. & I set off to walk, but Daddy did so too & talked ever ― & ever “willful=obstinate.” ― So I got onto a cab, & came home.
