Calm ― gray ― fine.

Accounts.

Worked at 3 Corfûs.

At 2.30 came the Trieste boat, with a glass ― I saw Miss J. Goldsmid & her party.

But the Vessel was declared in Quarantine by some Ionian bother, & it was 4 before they got out.

Called at their Hotel & saw Julia Goldsmid.

Walked from 5 to 6.30 ― by Kastrades, & to sea, home. ―

Dined.

Penned out till 10.30.

XX8

Dreadful night, from a rat gnawing a hole through from the drain into my bedroom. ill.
