Friday, 19 December 1862

Fine, ― & colder ― all day. very cold.

Mr. Cave called at 8 ― to ask if I would go to Pantaleone with him & Mrs. C. but I could not. I had risen very unwell ― having taken cold early ― & boles all upset. 6 times to the W.C. ―  & all the morning obliged to lay up by the fire.

G. came back from his brothers at 12 ― & the child is absolutely recovering. Spiro also better.

Worked at the smaller 30 tyrants ― from 12 to 5. always ill at times.

Greek ―  5.20 ― to 6. ― & Stephanizzi.

Dined very Small-ly ― on the [buzzina] of a woodcock.

From 8 to 10. penned out ― S. Angelo.

Would have gone to the ball ― ’ς τὸν Χορὸν ― εἂν ἡμπουροῦσα.[1] ―――

Cramps & unwell: little sleep.



[1] To the Ball ― if I could (NB).
