Came ― man from Foords ― & poor W. Beadons butler ― T.G. Baring ― & Dalziels’ man ― & then F.L. ― nearly all at once ― so that I was in a mess & angry & stupid. F.L. staid some time.

At 2 I dined. Came M. Parkyns then & staid till 5. ― Mrs. Clive also came ― kindly & pleasant

At 6 I called on Gould, & Mrs. Wyatt, but returned to tea.

Hired a Piano.
