Masada 9 day

Ditto weather ― damp ― dark.

J.B.E. not up. Letter from Edwards père. Wrote to him ― about all the pictures.

James’s talk of him vexes me much, ― yet I do not say it is not merited, for I don’t know. J. went at 11.

Worked at the foreground of Masada ― but there was not much time ― for I began late ― & letters took up hours.

Letters from S.W.C. The Colonel seems better. from C.F. who comes tomorrow: ― & Mrs. G. Clive.

Dined solo.

Penned out a good deal ― & ditto Greek.

These rooms are wonderfully comfortable.

Nevertheless ― X1
