Face very bad. Could not work.
Nice letter from H. Farquhar.
Very windy ― thick fog, & heavy rain.
Painted a little at Theatre of Petra, Corfu small, & Campagna. ― & at 4 it cleared up suddenly ― & at 5 I walked to Hastings.
LO! THE GREAT EASTERN!
I never saw so fine a sight.
Came back to tea & fish.
Wrote journals ― but the sea, & an old man singing bully me & I can’t go on. Face better.
