Friday, 8 January 1858

No διδάσκαλος. But I rose at 5¾ & did a passage of Ξενοφων. ― A dreary cold rainy (!!) morning. ― Worked pretty well all day at the Lord Clermont Athos. ― At 4, went to Citadel, & called on the Shakespeare’s. Afterwards sat with Lady Reid.

Indian news ― Havelock dead. ―

Home by 6¼. At 6½ Lushington came. ―

Talk of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle &c. ― a better evening than for some time past, with him.
