Cold ― very ― but fine ― all day. Salvador’s purple shade & pink lights!

No Ancôna steamer yet!! ―

Cold ― undigestible, & unwell all day.

Worked at all the smaller 30 tyrants ― but mostly at one Virò. Did not go out at all.

George ― always sturbato[1] ― goes & comes poor fellow ― to his brother’s. Spiro’s hand is worse ― & leeches are put, ― besides the surgical operation. The child lies in the same state.

Stephanizzi came at ¼ to 6. for an hour: he was pleasant enough tonight.

Dined at 7.

8. to 10½ ― penned out.

G. gone again to his brother’s: returns ― no change.

N. Wind. Yet no Ancôna boat?


[1] Disturbato, i.e. “upset.”
