7 July 1905 — Ca’ Capello, Venice
Friday. 7th [July 1905]. The temperature this morning is down to 80º & it is delightful. There were many deaths this week here & in the province from heat & a cyclone at Milan. Mr Harston came to see me early this morning but Signor Marzollo coming in shortly after he did not stay. Marzollo brought me a message from Rosen the Editor here to ask if I would let him publish a work on my pictures here. I said I would see about it & let him know later as I have already promised to let Sr Venturi do it. Later came Boni the head of Missiaglia’s the jeweller’s shop to offer me an oriental rose diamond ornament. After lunch I painted till tea time. Prof: Malagola & his wife came to tea & I took them out in gondola to the Eden’s garden—& to the Hospital. A high wind was blowing & a distant thunderstorm was going on—but it did not rain. Bss Reinelt called for me in her gondola just before 7 & we took a short airing on the canal till 8 when she brought me home to my dinner. I did not go out again in the evening.
