Rose at 7 ― packed: finalities. At 10 to 40scue, but he is unwell in Paris & has not arrived. So I breakfasted wth H.J. Gfell ― very agreably ― the more so that he gave me commissions for 2 pictures ― a Philœ ― (I shall see &c.) & a pendant in Beachy Head, or Hastings.

To Drummonds & drew 30£. Arranged about Insurance, & home. ― At 1.30 ― to poor dear W.F. Beadon’s, whom I left ―― I think ― for the last time. poor Mrs. B. feels the coming chill of death ― but expresses as little as she can. At 3 called on Dents for a Watch-Key ― & to London Bridge Rail by 4.30. Folkstone at 5.50. Dined at Pa[villion]1 & wrote immense lots of notes: bed at 10.30.2
