Fine ― al solito.

X8

Rose at 6.30 ― & resolved to begin a new system ― café at 7. Painted a little at Joánnina, but Gio. Παραμυθιόττι coming, & telling me that he hoped to get this floor ready by the 1st ― induced me to leave off work ― & pack up all my drawings &c.

Dined at 12.30.

At 3 went up & saw Mrs. Maude ― poor good little woman. ―

A curiously weary day, this ―

I walked to Ascension at 3 ― drawing at 2 or 3 places till 6.15 ― then returning slowly & by a round, ― & home by near 8 ― when I had an ommellette ommelette ― & a bottle of beer. But this 12 o’clock dinner arrangement didn’t do.

A wonderful beauty in Ἀνάλειψις.
