Fine ― & warm all day. Moonlight & calm glorious.

Sleep ― is better nowadays. ―

After breakfast ― (the Ancôna boat having come in during the night,) got 3 Newspapers.

Wrote a long letter to Mrs. Leake, & parts of others to Daddy Hunt &c. ―

At 3. to church. Craven preached ― woe is me. ―


(Then coming out of Church, the three hills beyond, & the colours of the dresses in foreground.)

Afterwards, walked with Dr. Roberts & Captn. Stockley to Ascension: pleasant & merry[.]

At 7. To De Veres. ― Only Dr. Roberts there. Mrs. D.V. did not seem well; ― we talked however till 11.45.
