Quite lovely & warm all day: open windows.
Experiments at Vido & Fort Abraham ― but no great noise.
Worked from 8.45 ― to 5.45 ― at Turin, going all over the Alps ― a little of the town, & latest, the trees: but I am not sure that the latter end of that picture be not worse than the first.
Half resolving to go to Palestine: a state of mind brought on by seeing Tippings views in Traill’s Josephus.
Did not go out at all ― a bore, & yet no steamer came.
Crowds on the Line Wall to see a small steam gun-boat ― brought by the Italian War steamer. At 7 ― to De Veres
Left at 11.20 ― most pleasant & hospitable evening.
