Monday, 20 February 1860


Wet. ― After 12 a most violent thunder & hailstorm, or piuttosto, ((Rather.)) many, & almost darkness till 4. rain always.

Went at 10 to Macbeans, & paid 5 scudi to Church fund.

Worked, when it was light enough, at Damascus.

Col. Bowen called: & later, Cheales, with whom I walked on the Pincian, in the rain.

Dined alone. ―

No letters ― which distresses me ― especially from Ann.

No sleep till past 4 AM on account of Carnival noises.

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