Half day of Turin ―

What an odd Xmas day! To begin with, a hard North Easter, & Salvador ― (when seen for Mists,) covered with snow 2 thirds down! 

Sent G. out to his home, & wrote to R. Fowler, & worked at Turin ― very decently.

At 3 ― Hutton, a nice fellow, & Sanson, ditto, came, & staid till 5.

At 6 I dined ― on Maccaroni & cold beef, ― & penned out 2 Jumerka Janina sketches, till 10.40.

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