Thursday, 21 January 1864

Quite a lovely day all day ― & warm. ― so complete a change! ― Hitherto, I have been suffering from cold as much as at Rome in 1859. ―

But the day was evil in some ways ―

XX& & I worked little enough.

No steamer (of the 21st) in.

But, the lovely calm of that harbour! the Salvador! the color! the gulls! the boats!

Did not go out at all.

The 2 cases, 50 copies of the Ionian book, the Turin & lots of other things ― all came. ―

Dined μοναχως.

Penned out a large drawing of Argostoli (May 4) till 10.

G. writes quietly in his room.

Placid days ― few now! [Ahi! December 1. 1864.][1]

Sent a copy of Ionian Book to De Veres, & Boyds. ―
