XX2.

Fine all day. Warm.

Worked ― more or less ― at the 1st trial Corfu to be photographed. ―― But from 3 to 5 ― heaps of people came. ― In the morning, Sir P. Shelley called ― asking me to dine in the yacht at 6.

So I went ― & having just come back, Sir Patrick Colquhoun was there ― a “clever” ― & very amusing man ― odd enough though.

The 2 Shelleys I like really & immensely. She often reminds me of E. Tennyson. Sir S., & Sir P. left at 8 for a Freemason’s meeting. I staid ― singing & talking with Lady S. till 10.

Her account of Mrs. Shelley’s last days was most interesting.
