Dull early ― rain & cloud from 12; or cloudy.

A dark gray day. Worked at Corfû A, but at intervals, ― tho’ not ill.

Col. Maude came down for a time.

(Last night (or morning,) noise went on till nearly 6: so I could not sleep & only rose at 8.30.)

At 4 went out ― meeting Geoff ―: & we went to Ascension, & along the coast, turning back before 1 Gun.

Shortly after we met Capt. Clifford.

Home by 6.20. Dinner 7. Intense stillness above, διατὶ;1

Penned out till 9: awfully sleepy.
