Finish ― but gloomy & cloudy at times.

Slept rather better: & rose at 7.30.

Chimariots in quantities arriving, & in the Quarantine.

1862-12-04

Drew at some 6 or 7 of the ‘30’ drawings from 9 to 5 broken by lunch, & by half an hour of pleasant De Vere’s visit.

Did not go out.

Dined at 7. Before & after a little of all thigs. Translated a page of Leakes Morea. Did a little Homer: & after dinner ― to my surprise ― actually penned out a whole Παλαιοκαστρίτζα drawing!

Poor George has a dreadful cold ― & went to bed at 9.

I now go at 10.30. ―

An old routine of life ― but καλὰ[1] if only one be occupied.


[1] Good (NB).
