Cedars Day 9.
By 10.5 was at work on the Cedars picture, & never stopped till 5.15: though it was very cold, ― & though Mr. Lyle sate by for hours, key jingling & light intercepting.
Yet I made much progress with the Cedars, & now must needs complete it ― tho’ I don’t see where. ――――
Dinner: ― pleasant al solito. ―
Afterwards, various work. ― penning ― writing &c.
