Rose at 7. Lovely weather. They are towing off the luggage of the 6th. ―

Worked at Turin all day ― i.e. ― to 5 ― but I don’t know if it progressed or not: latterly ― rather the reverse.

The rest of the outwall of Fort Neuf was blown up yesterday.

At 3. or 4 ― the Italian Steamer went off ― Wade-Browne on board.

Walked out at 5 ― meeting Boyd, who joined me ― for a time. ―

At 7. ― to De Veres,


Middling. Fun about the Darrer’s, who are actually going out in the Troop-ship to the West Indies!

I am inclining to go off as soon as I can [hence]. weary work tho’ the decision be.

To make bad worse ― coming home at 11 ― I had forgotten the key ― & could wake G. only after no end of knocking.
