Dark early ― but after 12 constant rain ― pouring.
Did not go out at all.
Letter from S.W. Clowes ― at Broughton. Good old Colonel Clowes is failing ― I fear ― dying. Wrote a long letter to Sam ― two letters.
Worked at figures & goats in the Campagna pictures: ― but the young Duc de Chartres came ― & staid a good bit: a nice lad.
After 4 sate a bit with Mrs. Huish. Then called on Mrs. Davidson: ― who is really a nice old lady. Played 3 games at Dominoes with her.
Dined at 6. μονος ― ῆ συνήθειά μας.
Then penned out a good bit of the enduring Interlaken.
Played also on an instrument ― & wrote some Greek.
The comfort of this place enables me to do so much more work than either in St. Leonards or Hastings ― where I suffered in all ways. Yet I would fain hear ἀπὸ τὸν Γεώργιαν.
