Rose at 5 ˇ[(G. having brought the 3 packages from Collas)] & (Café forgotten,) worked hard at dividing things & arranging πραγματα & drawings, till nearly 10. Then enquired about places to Marseilles: & at 11 ― had a (very bad) breakfast in the Hotel. Meanwhile I had sent G. to Athens for letters ― but he brought back only ― 6 papers, & 2 letters, both from Drummond’s, announcing payment of small sums ― by [Ladley] ― & S.P. Edwards (38) ― & a long & delightful letter from Mrs. Clive. Being sure that there were more letters, I drove to Athens about 2 ― & found 13 more letters, containing others
1 Drummonds ― letter of credit for 150£.

Called on Genl. Church, & Mrs. Hill, & then showed G. the Bacchus theatre, & the Ἀκρόπολις ― & came back by 6 in a carriage to Piræus. The sunset & still water made me wish to live here, but after dining, the run of sailors below destroyed that idea.
1st Class ― Piræus to Paris, 356 francs.
――――――― to Marseilles ― 308. Do.
