He is in bed with a bad leg, caused by a stirrup rubbing the skin off while riding. He leads a very solitary life. His picture is all in with chiaroscuro, and he has a piano. He has his Mendelssohn and Bach, but sometimes wishes for some Handel or Beethoven. If he sells his picture he may not come back for a year or two. Mr. Severn is to be married to a Miss Fergusson, Severn is painting a picture of the Marriage of Canaa. He sees a lot of Leighton who is clever, though a bit spoiled after the fuss made over him. He met some nice people in Sorrento, Mrs Plowden and her daughters.
