21 January 1893 — Ca’ Capello, Venice
Saturday. 21st January [1893]. The message that came this morning was that Cini was satisfied so far with Mr Malcolm’s state. All danger from the inflammation of the lungs was gone—& now the things to be feared were his weakness of heart & his great age as he is in his 79th year. Mr Luccato came to see us this morng & he & I went over to Malcolm’s house to hear more about him. Mr Padovan came downstairs to see me—said that Malcolm was asleep & was extremely weak, but that they had slight hopes now that he had passed the crisis of the lungs—that this last night he had passed the crisis of the 2nd lung & had had fever but much less than the night before– I returned home—wrote & practised guitar. It was fine today & not so cold– After lunch I went out for a walk in the Eden’s garden with Henry. It was lovely on the Sacca. Mr Eden was there & walked with us. Henry dropped me at Css Papadopoli’s whose “day” of reception it was. I had tea there & walked home. Henry went out to Stella to be read to. I practised guitar & read till dinner. Patience after.
