Very warm ― & cloudy ― scirocco.
Packed. At 10.30, came Sir H.J. Storks & Straham & derniered the pixurs. Afterwards, Miss Julia G. & her maid.
At 2.30 ― to 3.30. 2 Ἑβραίοι came & moved 25 objects ― tables, boxes, &c., upstairs. At 3.40 ― went out.
Walked the long round ― slowly: a dreary [stark] scirocco, & wind, & some rain.
Called to know how the Kokalini were ― all going on well.
At 7 to the Decies; they are packing up ― & we dined roughly in the small room of the Bolland’s, ― but the evening was very pleasant.
As the painters are in all the rooms but the west one, G.’s, & the kitchen, ― I am not over comfortable ― but on Monday hope to be straight.
