Rose late. Very stormy, dark, & rainy. Too dark to work: so wrote letters & Greek: & read papers ― till 12. Letter from Jane Hunt, Mr. Blackmore at last is dying. ― Worked at Petra & Campagna, ― pretty well till 5½.

Wrote to
Col. Leake
J. Hutchinson
R. Martineau

At 6 walked to Hastings, fine ― rough sea, & bright sunset.

Dined at 7. Read Clark,1 & thought I would write to him about the Βάσσαι.

  1. Perhaps William George Clark, whose Peloponnesus: Notes of Study and Travel (London: Savill and Edwards, 1858) had just been published. []
