Same wonderful weather.

Rose, unwell. But I said ― bother these difficulties. So at 9 ― I went to Taylor’s, & then came back to work.

Worked at a new Philæ.

At 10.30 ― came Φ. Κυρκυμέλλι & Φιζζι ― & they stayed a time. Ἔπειτα [][1] At 2, I walked by the Condi lane & Potamo flats, to that beautiful view I have so long intended to draw ― & thence I remained till 5 ― when I cut across to the Potamo road & drew again till 5.30. Then home by 7.

Found 2 letters ― from Mrs. Leake! ― & Mrs. Prescott: both very pleasant.

Penned out till 11.


[1] “Then” and two more Greek words have been cancelled.
