January 1 1815: Absit Omen!!

Walked on the shore. The Hoares left us. We had not quite so jolly a dinner as yesterday, but tolerable, considering Byron at night said, “Well, Hobhouse, this is our last night to morrow I shall be Annabella’s” – (absit omen!!)

— John Cam Hobhouse writes in his diary for January 1 1815
