Very warm & fine ― mountains invisible=misty.
Went to church ― perhaps for the last time here. Fisher of Cephalonia preached an ass like sermon of Herodias & Salome, & fornication generally.
Returned home to put on thinner dress, ― then to De Veres, were I lunched.
Back by 2 ― & then went to Wade-Browne’s ― who walked with me ― to the clay hill over Manducchio ― where we sate & lay on the grass from 3.30 to 4.30. How calm & beautiful the harbour! ――――
We went back by Καστράδες.
A most amusing, certainly, ― & I think really good fellow is Edwd. Wade-Browne.
To the Palace at 7.15 ― 7.30 ― dinner
Afterwards, to Baring’s rooms with Sturt ― & home by 11.30[.]
