Same weather ― a few clouds: none yesterday.

Worked at Florence till 1. Sir C. Sargent called.

Spiro continues better.

At 2 went to Ascension Platforms, working there till 5, & returning by the One Gun road, ― walking with Col. & Mrs. Herbert & Miss Fergusson.

Dined at 6.30 ―: penned out till 11.
