Masada 14 day

Letters from Ann, W.N. ― & Wyatt ― wrote to all them, & later to Drummond, W. Gush [] C.F. Cold truly horrivle. Ill.

Yet I worked on the Masada ― but until 1 or 2 P.M. not at all well.

Got Miss Dent to nail list on the doors &c., & make the bedroom warmer, ― & curtains heavy.

Dinner at 5. Miss Howard, & the Hardmans. ― Upstairs, worked again at Masadada till 10. One knows so little what one does or undoes. ―

Ὦ Μαύραι ἡμέραι! Τὶ θὰ κάμωμεν;1

Ἄφισα διὰ πολλὰς ἡμέρας, ἡ παράφρασις τοῦ Θουκυδίδου: δὲν ἐμπορῶ νὰ κάμω τίποτες.2

Σχεδον ἐπαράσθη ὁ χρόνος.3
