Fine. Rose at 6.30. Wrote to Mrs. G. Clive.

Letters from F.L. C.M.C. (20£) ― Bright, & F. Catt.

Ann came at 11 ― & stayed till 5: ― she seems better, yet not well.. ― the day was pleasant ― & we dined at 2. I worked a good deal at the oil Damascus. Mrs. Prinsep came, but I couldn’t see her. ――― At 6, went to Penry Williams, who goes on well (J. Gibson, who went by rail to Chichester, & overshot it: & at Portsmouth insisted on seeing the Cathedral!)

Came away at 8.30. P.W. hopes to go next week.

Sent off the Cedars to Oatlands to-day.
