Fine ― but cloudy.

A particularly pleasant day: ― rose at 9. Breakfast ― Mildmay is a far nicer fellow than he seems at first. Made a plan for haninging the Drawng-room pictures. ―Lunch. ― Afterwards ― walked with Mrs. Clive all about the pine=avenue, Yatton chapel &c. &c. The place is ˇ[as] truly beautiful, as its Mistress is good & kind.

Dinner & evening pleasant.

Ἀλλὰ εἶμαι πάντοτε κουρασμένος τῆς ζωῆς μου: καὶ ἐπιθυμῶ νὰ κοιμοιθῷ.1

Not well: yet better than before ― thanx to pills.

Perhaps after all, the less one stays in places one likes the better ― & so one escapes ˇ[some] pain. ― Therefore, wander. ――
