Very fine day, ― clear, the mountains!

To Church. ― Afterwards called on Newton, & sate with him some time ― poor fellow! he begins to see Rome is not the place he supposed. Walked with him by the river, & like him much. But he has a wall of old & narrow brickwork before him.

Then, being axed by Majr. R. & Miss Yates to drive with them, we drove to Tor di Quinto.

Poi: dined at Macbeans, only Mr. Bilton & Dr. Reilly. Extremely pleasant evening.

Miss Webb has come back!
