Half day of Turin ―
What an odd Xmas day! To begin with, a hard North Easter, & Salvador ― (when seen for Mists,) covered with snow 2 thirds down!
At 3 ― Hutton, a nice fellow, & Sanson, ditto, came, & staid till 5.
At 6 I dined ― on Maccaroni & cold beef, ― & penned out 2 Jumerka Janina sketches, till 10.40.
