Absolutely the same stupendous clear weather as before.

Worked very hard all day ― from 8.30 to 4.30 ― at 3 Corfus. ― placing a 15th (!!!!) painting on canvass.

Letter from T. Cooper ― enclosing Roberson’s Bill ―― 54£ !! ― & ˇ[an] invitation from Ed.d Woodthorpe to dinner ― (last week). Mr. Gush’s Eldest son is dead.

At near 5 ― walked the small round by the poplars & S. Deca road. Full moon & wonderfully lovely!

Invitation to dine at the Palace tomorrow. ― ―

Dine at 6.15. ―― Always good dinners.

Penned out Butrinto drawings from 7.30 to 10.

T. Cooper says that poor dear W.F. Beadon is much worse.
