C.G. Wynne ― Juniorissimo.
Mr. Mildmay.
Miss Clive

Worked at Cedars, & wrote many notes. Went out at 5 ― called on F. Sykes, & F. Thrupp, the last very dreamy: ― then to have my hair cut, but the rooms were full, so I came away, & returning up Bond St. lo! John E. Cross, & a little boy, who was Henry Phipps Denison. They 2 came home with me & saw the pictures & then the dear little chap played so beautifully! ― The “Cloches du Monastere” for example! So I gave him a Calabria and 3 songs, greatly pleased both of us. To dinner at 7.30 to Sir W. James’s.

Evening quiet & not unagreable. ― Lady Cranworth very pleasant & amusing.
