[Rome—Saturday, 10 March 1860]

Saturday 10th Jamie was suffering so intensely with a head-ache that we could not go to Mrs Story’s nice party nor the breakfast in the morning. Browning came in to sit an hour instead in the afternoon. Talked about Chorley’s unfortunate book and Hawthorne’s new novel.
