High wind, & black sky. ― Breakfast at 8. Walk to the Lake with G. ― & along the gallery ― but pouring rain began, & forced us to stand up. Ceasing a little, we went on to C. Gandolfo. Innumerable large toads suddenly crawling up left[-]hand wall of the Galleria. ―― Returned to Albano ― Thenceforth ― Torrinx of reign all day. ― Had some lunch, wrote & read by degrees or slept. ― At 4½ we just hit the vettura going to the  Rail ― the amiable Camerieri having declared it stood “fisso” for a quarter of an hour ˇ[from 5]. ― At the rail by 5.10. Wait till 5.40. Off at 5.55. ― Ciampino, 6.15 ― Roma 6.40. Omnibus to M. Citorio: ― carriage home. Dinner from Spillman’s & so ends this wet Easter. ―
