X12. ―

Very fine day.

Ill & sad all day.

Worked at the new Villa Gordianorum[1] ― placing it on canvass. 1st day.

F.L. came at & staid to 6.30.

Did not go out.

Penned out[.]

[1] Villa Gordiani, in Rome, takes its name from the imperial family of the III century AD, whose residence was supposed to have been there.
