Wednesday, 27 March 1861

The morning was fine ― but it soon began to rain, & rained all day. ― So that, after a little walk in the rookery avenues, we did not go out. But I sate talking with the Adml.Maria & Lucy. Jamie is to come ˇ[to day]. ((A longer sentence I cannot read has been covered.)) Τὰ σκυλιὰ ειναῖ ὀλίγον ενόκλητα, ὲδὦ. ((Nina is not sure about this, which seems to mean: “Dogs somewhat sit on their hind legs here.”)) ―

Διά ἐμὲ ― ἒχασα πάσης σωτηρίας λιμένα. ((As for me ― I lost the harbour of all salvation (NB).)) ―

Dinner ― & singing afterwards.

Sadness & misery.

At 10.30 P.M. Jamie came ― & we sate till 12 talking.


There was a letter also from Γεώριγος Κοκάλι ―: he had but heard then of Ann’s death.
