Drew 50 dollars from Macbean.

Gracious goodness! wet again! ―

Clear at 11. Macbeans.

Letters from C.F. & Gibbs. ―

Worked really hard ― as far as the dark gray day allowed, ― the drawings of S. Sabbas, & Baalbek. ―

At 5½ called on P.W. ― out. ― Then walked to P. Pia ― very cold. “fait pas chaud” ― I heard the sentinel say. ―

Called at the K.s: C. not yet come. ――

Mrs. & Miss Kennedy there: nice people aperiently.

Called also on the Caldwells, & saw H.J. Percy. there ― how “ferret=gimlet=eyed.” ― He has been up Masada & to ποιος εξευρει ποτε, εις δυω μηνες.1

Returned to dine alone: ― & R. Cholmondeley afterwards.
