Dinner from Spillmans.

Slept better, & woke less unwell. ―

Cloudy ― but finer, & with storms, & showers, & some sun, & some sleet, & much cold.

Worked at the 3 Cerbaras all day, except for ½ an hour at Macbeans.

No one came; no letters. Sat.day Review only.

At 5½ called on the Knights ― the 2 Bertie Mathews & Mrs. Caldwell there: ― Mrs. C. says Ancona & the Marches are all to be annexed.

Cold, raw, damp.

Dined alone. No one came: which enabled me to get on with a Jerusalem.
