When Edward Lear got back to Corfu on 15 June, he found that, owing to Bowen’s intrigues, Lushington had resigned and was preparing to go back to England. At first he thought he would stay on in Corfu (LEL, 110-1), but then decided to travel with him. The diary resumes in Dover on 23 August, after they have separated and Lear visits a few old friends before going on to London.
