Slept very tolerabull. ― Overcast sky, wh. engendered fears. ――

Breakfast ― a rush of 56 Papalpartigiani from Marseilles, of which 22 were priests. One party, a raw English lad in care of a Priest, answered me ― “he could not like dirty bread, tablecloths &c.[”] ― “but you will be sure to do so” ― said his friend, ― [“]Holy Rome always ends by compelling the affections of her children.” ―

Much fuss to take passage tickets, & irresolution: at length took a 1st & 2nd place for myself & G. ― Walked with G. on the Ramparts, (till turned off ―) & about them, till tired. & at 2 went on board. Long crowding & waiting. The 2 “Jirmins & brothers,” ― Mr. & Mrs. Hall, she a friend of Eleanor [Bultress], he rector of [Daletell]: young Waterton: [Pugh] of Naples, & others. Long talk with Dr. Strange about Naples. Dinner at 6½ ˇ[or 7] ― pleasant. Sat next did little for the Community.

Sat next to Halls: ― Evening wore away by walking & waking. ―
