Gray ― showery.

Unwell. ― Grenfell’s Philæ. Sad & weary.

Capt. & Mrs. Creyke, Mrs. Lyell & a Gk Gentleman came & looked at the “Galleria.”

At 3 came the Geoffrey Hornby ― who might walk about with all the swells here if he liked, but chooses to come to me. He sate an hour, ― & then we walked by Manducchio & the long round: losing “Jerry” to day at Kastrades, & regaining him at the Nicola steps on landing. ―

Home by 6 & dined at 6.45. ―

Penned out till 10.30.

N. Wind ― all of a sudding.
