  26. Tuesday.    In the garden writing all day, firstly to Han-
nah, then part of the fore-going twenty two pages.     Boutcher &
George Clarke came in the evening.
  27.  Wednesday.  Yesterday repeated.   A letter from Hannah,
which I responded to.    Charley back from Banbury, whither he went
on Monday.
  28.  Thursday.  To Harvey Smith�s, then Clarke�s.   With
George to the British Museum, where, in the private apartments, we
found Boutcher, Dean and Dickinson, looking over the drawings
of the former, when at Nineveh.     They are very fine, drawn with
a camera-like minuteness, and numerous.     Called at Price�s
hat shop.   Poor Harry at Bethnal Green again.
  29.  Friday.  Its particulars put down erroneously to yes-
terday�s credit. (Thursday was, I think, an in-doors day,
at the evening of which Boutcher and George Clarke came over.)
And now to Friday proper.     Edwin Bolton at our house, avail-
ed myself of his rail-ticket, started for Windsor, getting there
by 6, and at 7 for Banbury.   There in pretty good time, and
dropping in at Edward�s tavern, found Richard Bolton anticipating
my arrival, his uncle drunk, (and consequently a nuisance,) and
William Edwards the younger.       Off for Chacombe, Dick going
part of the way, the night dark and summery, a thick fragrance
of hay and clover in the air.     The Church clock struck eleven as
I passed through the Churchyard, where now, (very quietly) lies old
Mr Bennett.     Hannah and Charlotte up, and expecting my ar-
Rival.
  30. Saturday.  Happy.
