Cloudy all day ― & S. wind.
After breakfast, as I began to work on the Florence, ― G. came, dreadfully alarmed, saying that they had sent for him, as Spiro had a relapse. At 11, I, unable to work easily, called on Mrs. Herbert, & then went to Spiro’s, whom I found better after having been bled, but I cannot help fearing, very ill still.
Returned & worked, & read till 3. ―― Day very gray.
4 to 6 ― walked ―:
6.30 ― dined ―
8, sent George to his Mothers for the night.
Penned out Butrinto drawings till 10.20.
South wind ― but little of it.
