Tuesday, 19 January 1864

Horrid cold ― & sunless all day ― tho’ the snow on Salvador is nearly gone.

No Monday’s steamer yet!

But the “Morocco” with 2 boxes is come.

Drew languidly at the 5. W.C. drawings till 4: when I went out ― a bit along the Potamo road, ― but it was too beastly cold, 6 also rained: so I returned by 5.

Ἐγευμάτισα μοναχῶς[1] ― & penned out the last Samos sketch, & one of the Ἀργοστόλι ― till 9.30.

A certain placidity in this Corfú life is a charm ― never before attained to except in the early Roman days ― (at Civitella &c.) & never more to be found on leaving this ―― I fear: ― or rather, ― I doubt.

(Ἒτζι φαίνεται![2] ― December 1. 1864)


[1] Dined alone.

[2] It seems so (NB).
