Rose before 6 ― notwithstanding I went to bed so late.

Greek lesson. ― Worked at the Ιωάννινα all day ― by fits ― till 6 ― & the picture is better than before. Giorgio offers 3½ scudi for it. Dr. & Mrs. Henry of Φιλαδελφια came ― & a party ― I think Rainford by name. ― The old Lady said Jerusalem reminded her of Kensington Gardens, ― & asked if it was governed by a Mayor & Municipality: & the young man asked if there were trees in Greece, or if I had put those in the Bassæ for fun?

At 6½ I walked till 7 ― dined alone.
