In the evening, the party made to go and hear mass at midnight assembled at our house. After tea, the gentlemen amused us by playing charades till near midnight, when we all set out to make the round of the churches. Mass at midnight is usually accompanied by music; in several churches this year (they know not why) there was none. We went first to the Church della Vigné. We could not make our way through the crowd near enough to hear a word the priest said who preached at the altar. From there they proposed to go as far as the Church of Carignano; the long walk to it appeared nothing on this most beautiful night, with a soft mild air and a sky strewn with stars. Arrived at Carignano, we found the church shut. Visited the Duomo, where we again found the end of mass, with bad music, and a church full of people. The service finished, we returned home through streets crowded with people going in and out of churches, and walking about in large parties.
