Tuesday, 6 January 1863

Fine, gray=sunny ― & mild=warm dampy ― all day.

A fuss ― the Gk. Xmas. ― What a lot of visitors upstairs!

Worked at some of the larger 30 tyrants, & sent G. to dine at their Xmas family party.

Captn. Wilkinson came ― He & his brother, he says ― used to come to me in Rome in 1847 ― in the evenings ― when I used to play the Guitar. But I can’t recollect them: ――― tho I fancy I remember his face.

1863-01-06At 3. walked out to Ποταμὸς. Everlasting beauty of these walks! Saw the Clarks & others, & came back by the lower round. And to Corfu by 6.

G. tells me Χριστὸς nearly died last night, & he is put out by Spiro having taken a disgust at the Kastrádes Inn ― & having gone back to the S. Rocco lodging!

But G. is very good. ―

Penned out, 8 to 11.15.
