Large Masada. ― 1. day

Rain at times ― & gloom always.

Letter from ET. Lady Simeon is dead!

Penned out a good deal ― & finished all the 1858 Palestine views.

Worked a little at the 2 Nunehams.

Later began the squaring of the great Masada.

Edwards came at 6 ― & at 7.30 we dined at the Blue Posts. He goes tomorrow.
