Rose late: poorly. Wet ― till afternoon.

What a queer day!

Began to close up envelopes with circulars for the Ionian Book subscribers, but soon found that it would not do to write at all ― had work enough to look at addresses ― write them ― fold, & close the letters. So I absolutely made up in all 225 letters ― leaving even yet 393 names not written to.

Went to the Blue Posts at 7 ― posting one lot ― & afterwards at 10 ― posted all the rest. Ἂς παρατηρήσωμεν ― εἂν θὰ ἒλθη κατίτι καλὸ.[1] ――

Weary queer work.
