Fine. But, having got my Clive Cedars into a mess ― I could not work any more, & meant to give them up ― as well as the Cross 3 drawings: being in a state of upsidedownness.

The 2 Bagot visits were as ever, kindly & good. ― Willie N. is a puzzle: ἥ θὰ εναι καλὸς πολὺ, ἥ κακὸς πολὺ.1 ― Quite late, came Mr. Baring, who seems [to be]2 a most plain  & straightforward man. He admired the Cedars greatly, & asked me to stay at Norton Court: ― but I don’t quite see how I can go. ―

At 6 I walked to Thrupps ― (out.): & called on Mrs. Seymour, & the Bertie Percys: ― & so back, & arranged mounted drawings of 1838. ― At 8 to Blue Posts.

The [] Bradshaw is an evidently nice fellow.

We went to Sam’s rooms afterwards: & at 11.30 I was at home. ―
