Fine but gray ― & colder. I am unable from constant interruption to work ― so I give it up & lead a life of idleness ― drawing “nonsenses” at times, ― but sleeping at others.

Letter from Leycester Penrhyn. ― good Mr. Penrhyn died this morning at 4. ―

So we all depart. ―

Went out at 5.30 ― but it poured with rain, & I got wet. Paid Bicker’s bill, ―& bought sox &c. &c. &c. ― Home, & dined on cold meat. ―

Wrote to E. Tennyson.
