Third fine day this year. Packed ultimatiously all day… ―

Called on ˇ[poor] Coleman & others, wearied.

Dined at the Macbeans ― but it wasn’t pleasant. M. spoke sneeringly of A.T.Woolner, & all persons not Roman. He is, I fear, pretty much what C.K. says. However, Mrs. M. is assuredly a good & nice creature, & far beyond his desert I imagine.

I left ― λιγον θυμουμενος.1

Half resolve to go to Genoa.
