Turin half day.
Warmer ― & quite fine! ˆ[nearly] all snow gone off Salvador ― & the sun nearly all day.
9.15 ― to 1. Worked at Turin[.] ― Afterwards ― 2 skies of Philæ & Olympus.
Then Col. Maude came in.
Afterwards Bolland & his sister ― all which unsettled me: nevertheless I did a little of Butrinto foreground.
At 5 ― to 6.15. Penned out a small Janina sketch: 6.15. wash brushes & dress.
7. Dined ‘upstairs’ with the Maudes. Col. M. ― Mrs. M. & her brother ― (who seems a sort of p caste?) Dinner & “entourages” ― not good, or well ordered. ― All extremely “Irish.” ―
Yet Col. M. used to go to breakfast at Shrewsbury House, & asks if there was not a “very pretty daughter ― Sara, & also one, less pretty but very nice, Lucy?”
ἡτον, μὲ φαίνεται. ((The was, I think (NB).))
Came down at 9.15 ― & penned out again till 10.50. ― ossia ((Or rather.)) 11. at the last of the Jánina drawings here.
