The society at Argostoli, independently of these feuds, is not without its merits; comprizing many persons who are agreeable, both from their manners and acquirements. I was introduced by Major Du Bossct to the two principal physicians of the place, whom I found intelligent men, both οf them educated in Italy, and well-informed in their profession. At the house of my host Metaxà, I saw some specimens of the Cephaloniote lawyers, which did not equally interest me in their favour. The priests in the island, though very numerous, are inferior in respectability to both the former classes. They are generally taken from a lower rank in society, and their education is of a very limited kind; a circumstance not peculiar to this island, but common to the other isles, and to the continent of Greece. In Cephalonia, two papas or priests were for some time very active in opposing the schemes of improvement which have lately been carried on there [...]. The only Cephaloniote priest with whom I had much intercourse, was a deacon of the island, a respectable man, and a great proficient in music. He is very solicitous to be an agent in reforming the music of the modern Greeks, and gave me some compositions of his own, chiefly sacred; in which, though retaining the notation of his country, he asserted that he had made considerable improvement in the style.
