Hotter, if possible.

Rose before 5. Half=strength medicine.

Penned out La Petraja.

Letters from J. Senior.
F. Lushington
Mrs. G. Scrivens
& Ellen, ―― about poor dear Mary’s last hours.

Went ˇ[at 11] out to see about the Medicine Receipt, & to buy Photographs: very hot.

Home by 12, dinner.

No sleep for there was just time to square out the Petraija sketch for large outlines.

At 2.30 to Petraija: high wind: & could not draw well, irritated ― & nervous.

Came away at 6.40 ― sad & silent walk home in the dust.

This Petraija affair is a trying one. ―
