Pouring rain, & hot!!!!!!! τι καιρὸς!1

Rose ― & wrote through the day ― some 15 letters.

Callen on Mrs. Davidson ―nice old lady.

Just after ――――― dire confusion.

The great cistern had burst, & the rooms were being flooded.

Had to pack like lightening ― & did so.


Then, perceiving how fearfully damp all things were, I saw I could not stay in these rooms anyhow ― & packe all.
