Very fine all day. Dalzells man came ― & brought the last of the 112 prints of nonsense.

Cab to Rail ― Waterloo ― & so to Leatherhead, ― Sarah & Ellen, the last sisters, coming to meet me.

It is not so long ago, since dearest Ann, besides Harriett & Mary were there also.

The day was pleasant enough ― for I made them laugh, & talked constantly.

Mr. & Mrs. Waite came: she is very pretty & pleasant. At 5 Sarah walked part of the way with me. ―

Home by 7.

Letters from James Edwards, & F.L. ― the Husey Hunts, & Arthur P. Stanley had been.
