Sunday 17th May 1846

“Had very indifferent night last night, Mother being very ill, which broke my rest. Rose about half past 6 o’clock and met Ann corner Rathbone Place and Oxford Street. At half past 7 sent her onwards to Paddington whilst I breakfasted at coffee shop in Oxford Street. Overtook her in Edgware Road and went to Great Western Railway station and took place for Ealing at half past 8 o’clock. Arrived there quarter before 9, walked from thence to Hanwell, first round the back of asylum by canal; afterwards made for Greenford where we arrived about 12 o’clock and after service dined in the church porch as the doors were left open (bread and beef). Afterwards cut initials and date (NB 1846) on the paving of the same (paved with red tile) very distinct. — Kissed Ann on every stile. She afterwards same to me. — Returned through Hanwell and whilst walking thereabouts met Richard Bond junior with a young woman in gig opposite asylum gate. Left Hanwell half past 4 for Ealing Station and started from thither to Paddington where arrived 6 o’clock and walked home by the New Road etc. Weather very cloudy in morning. 12 o’clock some rain. After 2 cleared off and remained fine.”
