Sent letter to George Cocali.
Boyd ― Mrs. Boyd ― Charley
Miss North. Miss Ewart. Miss Hall.
Mr. Alfred Morrison.
All of which allowed but little time for penning out ― so I worked on ― (sleeping a little ―) till 6.45 ― when I dressed for dinner. ― Che vita di prigione!
Nevertheless, thank God, I “keep my health.”
On my way to 61 Eaton Place ― left a note & my Photograph at 11. Berkeley Square. Evelyn Baring goes tomorrow to New York. ―
Evening very pleasant. Mrs. Maxwell’s mother was a Corfiote. Col. Maxwell told me that Mr. Hay of Ἀπυθούλος died 6 months ago. Yet those poor people have not heard of it, ― at least had not in May 18. ― Came away at 11.
Great crowd about Duke of Buccleuchs ― a ball: what a whirl is the London life!
What a prison life!
