Friday, 28 March 1862

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[1] 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.


[1] Jews.
