Saturday, 22 March 1862

Violent storms ― thunder & lightning & rain till 2 or 3 ― afterwards ― calmer ― with rain at times: fine at sunset.

Little or no sleep last night. The noise of the people below & above, ― & at 2 or 3 A.M. a storm of wind, & corresponding fuss of doors & sportelli.[1]

G. came in at 6 or 7. Καραλάμβι is doing well.

Worked very hard all day at Olympus & not badly ― apparently ―― going up only to see the Cravens, at 2. ―

Did not go out at all: worked till 6.15.

Dined at 7.30[.]

Penned out till 10.30.

(Lerici & S. Erenzo drawings.)

Neither the Alexandria nor the Ancona boat in. ― no nothing.



[1] Window shutters.
