Thursday, 8 January 1863

A thick scirocco ― gloomy at times to a degree, & rainy.

Worked from 9 ― (having done a list of Greek,) to 4 ― hard: the larger 30 Tyrants. A queer task to have set myself ― these 60 drawings!

Χριστὸς is worse. ―poor fellow.

No one came ― ἀς ἐυχαριζοὺμεν τὸν Θεὸν.[1]

At 4.30 ―walked a little walk ― ενδεδημενος με Νικκερμποκκεριστικὰ ἐνδύματα.[2] ― Greek from 6 to 7.

Stockley came to dine. Soup and a Turkey: & apple conserves. Penned out, al solito.

The evening passed pleasantly. He has seen a gt. deal of Greece ― N. & South.

At 12 ― he went.

Windy stormy weather.
