Clearer. ― but a painful scirocco all day[.]
Neither the Ancona boat due yesterday ― nor the Alexandrian are in yet ― 11 A.M. ―
Wrote to F.L. but was upset by noise & bother. ―
At 3 went to Miss Goldsmids, & with her & Mrs. N. to Ἀνάλειψις & Πταμῶ.
I walked back thence.
Dined at Sir C. Sargents ― only Major Peel there. Evening not very unpleasant. ―
Delightful letters from
W. Nevill &
Mrs. Geoff Hornby.
