[Venice—Friday, 22 November 1889]

To Lido at 10.30—& Mr & Miss Browning to the Fort, half-way to Malamocco. In PM met the B’s at Mrs. Bronson’s, & took them in my gondola to P. Rezzonico[.] The King & Q. of Denmark arrd at Danieli’s, and the Chamberlain party sailed for Alexandria.

Browning seldom puns—but when Mrs Curtis told him that a German (at a party given by Admiral Noce to the German fleet) in silver lace told her he was the Officer of Jurisprudence, R.B. said perhaps he rigged the Jury-Masts.
