Morning very lovely  & quite clear. Wrote a letter to C.F. & packed: & at 12 paid bill, & came on board the Austrian Lloyd Steamer, Europa. ― good berth. ―

Passengers ― Greek Consul at Salonica (K. Naum)
Baron Alten ― Hanoverian, going (rather a day late) to congratulate K. Otto on his 25th wedding day.
3 Frankfort merchants ― going on a tour to the East.
a Prussian Graf von Henkel ― just like an Englishman & rather like F.L. speaking English & having travelled in America ― going to Corfû for health.
And several other anonymi ― [(]a Gk. lady [], whose parting from her children was antique a demonstration ―)

& so we left Trieste till 2.

Dined at 4 ― & all merry.

But at 5 came a violent S. wind & it was the Devil!

Oh! Oh! Oh!

night of torture!
