16 September 1911 — Ca’ Capello, Venice
Saturday. 16th [September 1911]. & it was very pathetic that when he bid me good bye he suddenly bent down & kissed my hand. This from an Englishman & one unusually shy showed how happy he had been here. His life now is particularly lonely. One son living at Constantinople & the other in S. America. Happily he has a busy life what with the R. Academy work & with his own painting which is finer than it was when he was younger & his sight was better. His failing being that it was hard & with too much detail & it is now broader & more effective. Mrs Curtis & her nephew Latimer, came to see me at tea time– She having returned to Venice 3 days ago. After tea the Hugh Poynters left to go on board the ship which was to convey them to Constantinople. I went for a walk before dinner. I am again alone after many months & am glad to be alone & at home for a real bit of quiet.
