A Paradise day: bright & lovely. ― Rose at 7.
After breakfast came the Piano wh. the Decies had.
Then, the old table wh. I had in Condi Terrace, & Casa Chiessari. & later, the 2 boxes sent from Stratford Place. Giorgio, as usual, works diligently.
At 3. went out. Saw Col. & ˇ[Mrs.] Wynne: neither agreable. He talked of my rooms, & wondered they were not seized on violently. She was d―d affectionate, ― & condoled on the place of my large picture. ― Saw the Loughmans also: very trite & uninteresting.
At 4 ― walked to Ascension. (the Lord High was polite.) ― the old Olives & wonderful blue sea & opal hills.
Returned by 6 ― or 5.30. A wondrous sunset.
Saw Buchanan. Nicolo Παραμυθιόττι, &c.
Dined. And further unpacked the various boxes sent to day.
After all the storm & wind, calm abounds. ―
Called on Stephanizzi also.
To bed before 10: & ευχαριστούμεν τὸν θεὸν ― slept beautiful.
 Thank God (NB).
