Rose late. Not worse ― not much better: yet I set to work at one of the 8 pictures: Iviron ― but I was ill able to do so. Lushington kindly came in very early ― at 9 & again at 3 when I walked with him to the Marshes, where Colonel Curzon overtook us, & we all went round over Ποταμὸ. I dined at the Palace. Sir George & Lady Douglas, & T. Bunsen there. Ill & bored more or less.

Glad to come away.
