N.W. wind ― cold ― & bright all day. ―

Read papers. Worked ― but not satisfactorily, at Nos. 24 ˇ[& 25] ― (which I finished ― 25 ― & 26 of the smaller 30 Tyrants: they bore me to death.

Sir C. Sargent came about 2 ― & asked me to walk. He bored me still more, being full of endless questions, & turning over my 25 poor drawings in about 5 minutes: ― a contrast to Majr. Bethune & the De Veres.

Unsettled ― but worked till 4; when I walked out ― cold & bright ― by Manducchio & over the Condi road ― back by the Potamó ditto.

6 to 7 ―Stephanizzi.

7.30. dined.
