Cedars ― 14th day.

Finer, but colder, & windier. Morning very fine; so I drew Cedar edges & tops from various places ― thereby catching cold. ― Went to the picture, & got it off its 4 tubs on to the ground again. But I was very unwell ―


& soon came away.

Dined alone early ― i.e. ― 3 ― & then drew till 5 ― (Baalbek,) when I lay down, I couldn’t get up again. ―
