Tuesday, 24 January 1860

What a horrible day was yesterday! ―

This morning was clear: ― & Giorgio, happily, was lively, & considering his misery for some 2 days that  is a wonder.

I worked at the Clive Dead Sea, & better than usual, though sleeping by fits. (Mr. & Mrs. Forster called.)

At Sunset, walked on the Pincian: cloudy & dark & horrid.

Dined alone. [Ηλθε κανενω]. ((I suspect Lear meant κανείς δεν ήρθε, which Google Translator renders as “nobody came.”)) ―

Penned out another Lebanon drawing.

[Transcribed by Marco Graziosi from Houghton Library, Harvard University, MS Eng. 797.3.]
