Quite fine. ― Cold bad. Sir H. Ward dead. ―

Letters from C.F. & wrote to him & others.

Worked a little at Church’s drawings ― & afterwards, at the Cedars in oil. ―

Could not work after 2. At 3 went up to Z. Gardens: Monday, sixpenny day & great crowds. Could get nothing to eat before 6. ― Came to P. Williams & sate till 7.30. J. Gibson came in. ―

What crowds of happy people & children!
