Windy ― but fine.

No rest.

Breakfast 8.30.

Wrote to Fanny C. Percy C. ― &c. &c.

At 1 ― resolving not to dine out ― walked straight to beyond Κονδόκαλι, & up the little pass towards Κυρκυμέλλυ ― where F.L. taught me “pistol shooting” years ago. There I drew for an hour ― & then began slowly to turn back ― reaching home by 7.

At 7.30. went & dined at Carters. Some people over there, beaten by distress of wind to this port coming from Tripoli (in Africa) to Malta, they were 10 days out helpless ― & finally driven to Navarino.
