Left for Brighton taking with me Bell, Rosa, Harry, Frank, Mrs Elley, Jane Messenger and Marion Harris. Harry left us at Victoria to visit Mr Crowther Smith at Sutton. We arrived at 30 Medina Villas, Cliftonville, about 7pm from Victoria, via Horsham – found Mr Maclean awaiting us there – the servants having left the keys with him. The gas meter stood at 10½ ; 6 ; 3.
Before I left home Mr Hiorns called about farm. I embodied what he said in a note to Canon Payne and sent him the draft lease.
