Gray ― all day: gleams of sun later.

Painted at ˇ[Fairbairn’s] Florence ― olives & vines ―but was very unwell all day.

Col. & Mrs. Herbert & Miss Fergusson came.

Did not go out.

George has a bad eye.

Went at 7 to dine with Miss Goldsmid ―but was too unwell to eat.

Home by 10.

Little sleep ― from noise overhead
