Cloudy & soppy. ― Rose at 9. Breakfast. The Book came from Genl. Casanova. Lo! ― Major De Vere! ― little Mary & her maid, & Mrs. De Vere! “Piacere” ― as Giorgio says.
So we walked about, (after I had taken my ticket to Corfu ―) all day ― to the port & back, & Mole: & to the Cathedral, where a sacristan, & a small boy, one Carlo Violino ― showed us all things. Then along the sea wall & up a hill ― & so back ― buying bootlaces ― till 4.
Dinner at Table D’hôte: ― the General & Major, & the De Vere’s: a most pleasant evening ― till 9.
 A pleasure.
