Same weather.

Rose at 6. Took no medicine ― fearing to overdo it.

Better in the morning, but not quite so well after dinner.

At 2.30 to V. Firenze & drew from 3 to 7.30: ― finishing ˇ[the last of] all the 4 large detail drawings.

Walked to S. Miniato afterwards & home by 8.45. It is vastly hot.

Now, next comes the Villa Petraija in earnest: & after that, 6 days for the 3 sanctuaries.

At one time today I thought of going on to Arezzo Cortona & possibly Thrasymene & Assissi [sic], ― & of returning to Chiusi, Monte Pulciano, & Sienna [sic], S. Geminiano & Certaldo: ― but I think it is too hot, & time would be better employed in Switzerland. ―
