Rose at 5¾. Ever a mist ―: fine by 8. Gk. lesson.
Always less able to work after going into the Campagna. ―
3 papers to read. ― Worked, ― & ― νομίζω1 ― finished Mr. Sandbach’s 2 drawings: ― but, chi sa? ― Giorgio went out to the Europa, & being kept a long time ― was more angry than I thought I ever saw him: ― but gt. allowance is to be made for this ― vû his natural temper, & that he never dawdles at all. Poor fellow! he would gladly work all day ― yet he longs to go out of “ἡ φυλακή.” ―2
Worked on till 4. How lovely a day! ―
At 5 came Edgar Drummond ― & I walked with him to S. Lorenzo ― a most pleasant walk. ―
Returned to dine alone. ――― War ruinous bad.
