Perfectly calm & bright & lovely all day.

Finished Nos. 2 ― 3 ― 4 & 5 of the larger 30 Tyrants ― & also worked at No. 6.

& at 4 ― went out ― up the Parga lane ― how beautiful the harbor, Vido & Nemertska! & so gradually round to the Potamo road ― going up to a lone church ― Ἄγιος Ιωάννης.[1] Ἐγὼ εἶμαι ὁ ἐφημέριος[2] ―― said the priest.

Home by 6.20. Greek till 7.15[.]

Dined. ―

At 8.10. ― Penned out ˇ[part of] the Monastery Nifes sketch, June 23./56.

What quiet in this house now! I should not like to leave it.
