Gray ― cold early: fine ― after 1 or 2 P.M.

Awful cold mist. Went early from the Hotel, & placing cloax in the Railway carriage, walked about Calais. Off at 12. In a good deal of pain from the strain ― & a bad headache & tired, & finally resolved not to go on tonight by the Maçon train, as that involved another day’s travel.

Paris at 6 ― good train. Immense courtesy of Douane officials: nothing touched, though opened. Hotel Louvre. Dined at 7.30. Walked a little. Bed at 9.30.
