June 8 1816: Mistake

john_william_polidori_by_f-g-_gainsford

June 8. — Up at 9 ; went to Geneva on horseback, and then to Diodati to see Shelley; back; dined; into the new boat — Shelley’s, — and talked, till the ladies’ brains whizzed with giddiness, about idealism. Back; rain; puffs of wind. Mistake.

— John Polidori writes for June 8 1816
