Quite brilliant & lovely ― all day.
Slept ill all night: & could not rise.
Γεώργιος came in after 6. Nicolo recovers ― but Καραλάμπι is very ill. Those dreadful 2 swellings on the neck! I think he may not live. G. is quiet ― & says “Bisogna guardare [& ―]
Πρέπει να κυττάζωμεν ταῦτα τὰ πραγματα (ἣ συμβαντα) ὣς Θέλημα τοῦ Θεοῦ.
Went to Taylors ― walked a bit, casually, with Strahan, & paid Carters & Page’s bills. ― Got cash for cheques at Bank. (where Andrew Longhman told me that the brother of the Princess of Wales is really elected K. of Greece.) & returned home for breakfast at 11.30. At 12.30. Drew Salvador with boats from Fort Neuf ― till 5.
At 5.30 walked ― by Καστράδες ― & saw Βασίλια the Elder ― good woman indeed!! ― & young Nicolo, who is nearly well. But poor little intelligent Καραλάμπι I fear grows worse. I told good old Βασίλια that Giorgio was to stay. [“]Καλῶς, εὐχαριστήσις, Ἁφέντι μου!” said she ― εἶμαι, ἀληθεια, μοναχὴ, καὶ ὁ Σπίρο εἶναι Ὸξο.” ―
Went up to Βασίλια’s house ― once Cortazzi & with Nicoλa B. walked up & down. Certainly a Paradise.
Returned to dine at 7. but sent poor Giorgio away at 8.30. Penned out somewhat.
 It is to be seen.
 We have to regard these things (or events) as God’s will (NB).
 Good, thank you, Master (NB).
 I am truly alone, and Spiro is out (NB).
