X 11 X

Off the rails again! ―― Ahi!

Rose at 7 ― not well. 8 to 9½ ― saw the 2 Nuneham pictures hung up.

Breakfast. ― Left at 10, Sir H.J. Willoughby also.

The French Princedom at the Station.

Stratford Place: not at all well.

Slept ― κῶμα (([In a] coma.)) till 2.

Lunch. Worked at Cross’s Baalbek.

At 4 walked towards Daddy Hunt’s ― but met Egg ― who told me Daddy was at Hastings: so I walked back with Egg.

Boles out of order.

Musters’s 7 drawings came back framed.

Went to R. Hay’s: found him ill enough. ―

At 7½ went to Edgar Drummond’s ― a most pleasant evening. Mrs. D. is really interesting ― but was unwell, & looked so.

Talk of Greece & Sinai.

& D. walked partly home with me. ―

I wish Γιώργιος would write.

Letter from Lord Clermont, declining the Civitella.
