Same pleasant, fine weather ― clouds ― & sun: ― showers afar off.
Now & then a breeze ― wh. makes the boats ricuperare for an hour or so.
Worked ― almost nil. & a little at some out of window drawings. My piano went at 12. ―
All things rather unhinged.
Came ― Capt. Wade Browne ― & bought 2 drawings: & later, Capt. Stocker, who bought one ― so that I should have a good 50£ to run about with. Came also Sir H. Woolff, with a Mr. & Mrs. Lane ― very nice people ― & a Sir Somebody ― not nice. ―
From 4 ― I began to pull down the pictures, & take them out ―, wh. operation lasted to 7.
G. comes in & says Nicola has febbre ― & pains in the throat ― & is in a sort of alarm ― no wonder ― with all these illnesses about.
Did not go out. At 7.10 ― Capt. Stocker came for his drawing.
7.20. dined. ― Afterwards penned out, & G. went to see his boy.
At 11.15. returned: Nicola is not worse, but I don’t like what I hear of him, altogether.
Bed at 12. ―
 Gain time (?).
