Dark early ― but after 12 constant rain ― pouring.
Did not go out at all.
Worked at figures & goats in the Campagna pictures: ― but the young Duc de Chartres came ― & staid a good bit: a nice lad.
Dined at 6. μονος ― ῆ συνήθειά μας. ((Alone ― as usual.))
Then penned out a good bit of the enduring Interlaken.
Played also on an instrument ― & wrote some Greek.
The comfort of this place enables me to do so much more work than either in St. Leonards or Hastings ― where I suffered in all ways. Yet I would fain hear ἀπὸ τὸν Γεώργιαν. ((From Giorgio.))
