Same amazing Paradise weather ― & not quite so cold.
Rather a happyish bebothery day.
Obliged to have a load of wood ― I burn so much. Lady Woolff did not come.
Worked pretty interval=hard at Cormayeur [sic] ― with its vast buttresses & ice glooms. How exactly these drawings bring back past life! Buchanan came. He & heaps more go to Athens αὔριον.
Did not go out at all: I ain’t been out since Monday.
‘I have not been, & still won’t go.’
Conceived other paintings ― Parga, Philæ, & Gethsemane: ― ἀλλὰ μὰλλον νὰ ἑτοιμασωμεν πρότερον ταῦτα ὁποῦ ἀρχίσαμεν.
Dined ― 7.
Penned out 8.30 to 11.
G. with all his good will ― will not be a good house servant 5 years more: ― what to do towards this τίμιος ἂνθρωπος?
 Tomorrow (NB).
 But we should rather finish first those we have already started (NB).
 Honest man (NB).
