May 4, Friday

A letter was received from Mr Grimaldi, forbidding our proceeding with the buildings. (At this distance of time I entirely forget what was the result of this inhibition; but I know that subsequently, – I cannot say how soon, – he had to give up the agency. He told me himself that he could not agree with Mr Bowyer now that he was Romanizing, or actually gone over to Rome: I think it was the latter. 27/2/74)
