Gray ― moist, rainy now & then, very warm.
Lo ― they came, but one was too large to come upstairs, so we had it opened below: & got all the things out by degrees. ― The getting it down into the cellar was a worse job.
Meanwhile I placed on canvass 2 Philœs & a Spezzia, & made Tracings of Janina & Athos & Massa: ― but the day was disagreeable & weary.
At 5 ― I walked a little way ― seeing Aubrey De V. ― & returning to dine at 6.30.
G. went to Spiro’s ― & I penned out all the remaining Troy sketches till 10.30.
Unwell more or less all day.
No fire ― too warm, till dinnertime.
