Gray all day ― & rain at times: very warm.
Worked at Corfû A ― foreground ― grass &c.
At 2.30 came Geoff ― with whom walked to Ποταμὸ ― & then round by Govino road: ― he is as always a delightful chap. ―
Went to Capt. Bridges’ to dine: the Boyds there: ― pleasantish ― but così.
A Mrs. Spenser also. But then new people are a bore to me more or less ever.
Walked home with the Boyds, ― home by 11.
The Maudes have been ‘having’ a party: & it seems to me that they are still very noisy.
It is certain that Corfû life, if as this winter could not be worth while trying for another year.
Penned out, (Konitza) till 12.15[.]
Geoff’s story of Edwd. T. (διὰ τὴν γυναῖκα εἰς St. John’s Wood,) εἶναι πολὺ διάφορα ἀπὸ ταύτην τοῦ Colonel Herbert, ὁ οποῖος ἔλεγε οτι E.S. ἐπιθυμοῦσε πολὺ sposare in Canada. 1

- Geoff’s story of Edwd. T. (about the woman at St. John’s Wood,) is very different from that of Colonel Herbert’s, who was saying that E.S. greatly wished sposare [to get married] in Canada (NB). [↩]
