Friday, 19 February 1864

Cloudy or clear at times alternate all day.

Worked at Argostoli foreground.

Italian steamer in ―― a delightful letter from Mrs. Clive ― lo! they have taken No. 7 Stratford Place!! ―

Alas! & probably I shall not see them there!

Later, ― part of the Fort Neuf was blown up ― or down.

I painted in the Argostoli & Florence skies.

& at 5 ― walked out ― partly along the Ἀλιποῦ road ― but returning called on Lady Wolff ― & sate with her & the children some ¾ of an hour.

Dinner ― μοναχῶς ― at 7.30. Penned out ― the last 2 of the Cephalonia drawings!

Τι ὑπομονή![1]

Cerigo drawings next in the list.



[1] Such patience! (NB).
