Rose at 7. Fine ― i.e. ― no rain ― but gray. (― & after all the demonstrations of the moon ― I believe we are not at fine weather yet.)
The contents of the 2 boxes of yesterday, I arranged ― before breakfast. And afterwards, began to draw outlines of drawings “to be made ―” ―― to the amount of 30!!!!!!!!!
Came Politi ―― to whom I gave Miss Goldsmid’s book: ― & we discussed carpets. ――
At 2.30. I set off ― straight on end, ―― along the ancient round ― up to Κυνοπιάστες, ―― but Villetta was not there!
I saw a man who told me that he was “εἰς τὴν πόλιν” ―― (at the same time he blew up a woman ― who talked of “ὁ δοῦλος τοῦ κυρίου” ―― “δοῦλος”! ― he shouted ―――― “ὁ ἂνθρωπος!”
Walked back by 6.
Giorgio’s Dinner was pleasant ― & welcome. He shews me a writing of Nicóla.
My piano is a blessing.
The waves plash, plash. ―― but I think we shall have more rain.
Up to near 10 I have written out a lot of words from A.P. Stanleys Gk. Church. but must now go to bed.
