Gray day: no rain.
Did not go out.
No one in the Corso, so I suppose there is some demonstration elsewhere.
G. is out. A queer sort of man came with a letter to him, ― & would not give it to me. ――
At 6 to Macbeans. Procession of holy somebodies, ―― Newton, O’Brien, ― & the Malcolms at Dinner. As usual ― immensely pleasant. The Monday affair was very much discussed. Tuscany is annexed. ((Tuscany, Parma and Modena, already united into the United Provinces of Central Italy, voted to be annexed to the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia after Napoleon III agreed to recognize the annexations in exchange for Savoy and Nice.))
