Saturday, 3 January 1863

Gray ― gleamy, ― showery towards sunset, & a good deal of S.E. wind. No Ancôna boat in. ―

A busy day, ― sent G. to buy a Lampshade, leave a book at the Palace, ― see to a Sideboard for sale, ― pay one or 2 bills ― & get dinner for this evening. ―

Meanwhile, I drew hard all day ― getting all the smaller 30 Tyrants into another stage. ―― till 4.15 ― when I walked out a little way ― returning with Major Bethune.

6 to 7 Greek.

7 ― Dr. Roberts came & dined with me ― a pleasant evening. He is a very nice fellow. At 11, ἀναχώρησε.[1]

Ἒπεμψα τὸν Γεώργιον εἰς τὸ Κrεββάtι εἰς δέκα ὣρας ― ἐπειδὴ ἠργὰσθη π[ο]λὺ τὴν ἡμέραν.[2]


[1] He left (NB).

[2] I sent Giorgio to bed at ten ― for he worked a lot all day (NB).
