Friday, 26 December 1862


A bore. Did not rise till 8.30.

Perfectly lovely day ― those bright snow mountains, as of old.

Drew off & on at the 60 Tyrants.

Spiro’s boy still lives.

Headache ― & chilled.

At 3. went to Strahans ― Taylors ― & bought toys for various children.

Then walked with Dr. Roberts ― returning at ¼ to 6.


Dinner at 7.

Penned out till 10.30.

They say that yesterday there was news of some proposals of giving the Islands to Greece ― but chi sa![1]


[1] Who knows.
