Extremely unwell all the morning. Yet walked across to Seymour St. having left a lot of things for Hansen to take away. Occupied all day in packing!! ― for Rome. It must be so. ―

To Foord’s at 5 ― & back to Tor Villa, where I dined with H.H. ― & penned out till 12.

I now resolve to send off Lady Waldegrave’s pictures & Lady Reid’s also: ― for I found there is no possibility of working out what I wish here.
