Summary

Some Moors are poisoned, castrated and beheaded after entering an Italian home on the 4th. On the 7th, things look better since Rome fell the previous week. Lattarullo's fortunes have improved as a result. He will not play a role at cemeteries as "the uncle from Rome," but Lewis worries he will be recognized. But Lattarullo has a good act. The 9th brings another bout with malaria for Lewis; he learns that Frazer had been posted and the affair with Lola was over. He expects Lola's lover, the Federale, to send his wife to summer exile in Capri.

On the 27th, Lewis writes that there has been a week of fiestas, marches and miracles. Marian piety and fervor is on great display. Lewis recounts the events of the day.
