Distinctly hot: not so clear or bright, but muggier.

Rose at 6. Cafè nero & bread. Worked at squaring & outlining 4 divisions for the S. Firenze view.

At 11 to the post: letter from dear old Daddy which I answered & sent to post. Called on Marchesa Stufa. & home by 12. ― Dined at 1 very simply. No boles however, in spite of the pill.

At 2.30 in a carriage to V.S. Firenze ― & drew hard from 3 to 7.30. ― Walked home, & found Permesso for drawing in the Villa Petraija, from Marchesa Stufa. ―

Took some tea & bread & butter. Feel better, & less feverish than yesterday ― yet my boles are a bore.

I must take another pill.
