But I never moved out. Yet it was one of those strange happy days all through (barring an hour,) which I never knew elsewhere than here ― except in very-long-ago days.
After breakfast (& dressing at the open window, looking over the harbour in a pleasure ―) & hearing G. read ―― I worked at the Argostoli ― off & on ― till 6.15, utterly uninterrupted. ―
Alas for the “Fishermen,” ―
Oh how beautiful is this harbour & quiet!
There were 2 letters, from C. Lane, & Cramer Roberts: both very nice.
At 7. dined: & afterwards penned out Cerigo drawings till 11: ― hearing ever the divine Viviani Casotti playing.
So, there is really ground enough to call that a delightful day.
