A fine day ― barring 2 showers: but cold.

Worked at Athos ― part well, part not.

No letters of any sort.

Wrote to Daddy Hunt.

Little boy next door came in to see drawings.

Dined at 4 ― sole solo, al solito.

Van Crake & old Mr. Harness came ―.

Walked out from 6 ― & sat “looking at the moon” ― till 8. ―

Wonderfully sad & blank & weary, tho’ better in health.

I think I fix to stay here thro’ next week, & then go up to town ― stopping 2 days at the F. Goldsmids. Then, whether or not I come down again with the pictures, I do not yet know.
