Fine. Letter from P. Williams: they seem utterly ignorant in Rome.

Wrote P. Williams & others.

With pictures unfinished & unpaid for, I do not know what to do. ― Yet I think I must go. ― o what a bore it all is.

As Daddy H. said yesterday ― there is no repose.

‘Still from one trouble to another thrown ―’

Accounts from Italy still more doubtful. ―

Unwell & head bad.


Worked at Campagna. ― Despairing of completing the Petra.

Day fine.
