Clearer. ― but a painful scirocco all day[.]

Neither the Ancona boat due yesterday ― nor the Alexandrian are in yet ― 11 A.M. ―

Wrote to F.L. but was upset by noise & bother. ―

At 3 went to Miss Goldsmids, & with her & Mrs. N. to Ἀνάλειψις & Πταμῶ.

I walked back thence.

Dined at Sir C. Sargents ― only Major Peel there. Evening not very unpleasant. ―

Delightful letters from

W. Nevill &
Mrs. Geoff Hornby.
