Showery, at times all though.

ἀλλὰ δὲν πειράζει.[1]

Rose at 6.30. ―

At 8 ― several letters & subscribers. Particularly nice letters from Lady Shelley, Mrs. G. Clive, & Lady Goldsmid.

Finished 11th Lithograph ― (no. 8 Lefchimo.) & began 12th Lithograph. (No. 2. Salvador.)

Dear good old Mr. Ashton came ― to my surprise ― he is past 75. A dream it seems, that sending me to the rail so many years ago ―with J. Winstanley, then a young man, now a grandfather.

A good deal of quiet talk ― but it does not do to talk much with him.

At 5.30 ― walked to Lord Westbury’s. ―

Dined at 7 ― μοναχως.

Ὁ Γεώργιος, διατί δἐν γράφει;[2]

wrote, & made “circular notes” till 10. ―――


[1] But it doesn’t matter (NB)

[2] Why hasn’t Giorgio written? (NB).
