Sent letter to Lady Bethell.

Tolerably fair till 12 ― afterwards cold, damp & dark.

Worked pretty well at Stansfeld’s Tor Cento Celle. Wrote to Lady Bethell: very hastily ― in 25 min. ― but I thought, better so, than delay longer.

1st day of Carnival: very seedy. ―

At 4 walked with P.W. to St. John Lateran ― gray & cold.

Dined alone. Penned out Damascus.

G. Kokali writes & reads better than he did.
