Friday, 2 January 1863

Fine ― gray ― soft ― a few showers towards sunset: windless.

A scattery day. Having returned only at 12.30 ― I rose late, G. in these days ― saws the wood, & will neither read nor write ― being bothered by his family woes.

I drew at 5 of the Smaller 30 Tyrants till 1 or 2. Then went to various places, Taylors &c. &c. ― & got £30 from Conways. At 3.30. called on Mrs. Lyell ― & afterwards walked ― Straham overtaking me, & joining me, till we fell in with Miss Williamson, a vulgar young lady ― whereon I cut off to Ἀνάλιψις. All olives were gray ― & near the one gun ― it began to rain ― so I came back ― & home by 5.30.

Stephanizzi ―.

Dined at 7. ― & penned out from 8.

G. gone to Καστράδες.
