The departure of the Shelley party and Scrope Berdmore Davies left Lord Byron and John Cam Hobhouse on their own at Diodati. But they would soon see or entertain a number of visitors, including Lady Jersey and her husband, Richard Sharp, and two young Greeks named Nicolas and Francis Karvellas. During his final days at Diodati, Byron began to think about what he should do about John Polidori, who had strongly disapproved of Hobhouse. He wanted to get rid of Polidori, believing that his doctor caused him a lot of trouble.
