Same glorious brilliant weather.

Giorgio returned at 7 A.M. Poor Spiro lies in the same state.

Penned out drawings: incapable of thought=work. No letters by Trieste boat.

Hutton & Sanson called.

G. who was out from 10 to 3 ― says Spiro is much the same: it is Pleurisy ― but they hope, by bleeding again, to prevent danger. Nevertheless, φοβοῦμαι.1

At 4 ― walked out & was overtaken by Craven ― whose brother married Mrs. Slingsby Bethell’s sister (!)― much talkin[g] of Hackwood, Gussie Bethell &c.

Dined at 6.20. George went home afterwards. ―

Penned out Φιλάτες drawings till 9.15. Sleepy ― tired & to bed.

Ούτως ἐτελίωθη,2 1861.
