Masada 10 day

Dark ― foggious ― but fine after 12 ― warmer.

Letter from Percy Coombe ― who can’t come.

Worked at Masada till 3. Headache.

Took a little walk ― by Weybridge & back. Thucydides till 7 ― after which C. Fortescue came. Ευχε λειψει ― (εις μιαν αμαξαν ―) θηκαν τινα.1

Dinner & evening ―― most delightful.

& Greek words ― set at rest by C.F.

Ἐνεποίουν ― εμποιέω ― to introduce

Ἐπέζοντο ― πίεζω ― to press hard on

Ἐπήροντο ― ἐπέρομαι ― to consult, ask

Ἡγώρησε τὸν μικρόν Παλέρμο: διὰ εἴκοσι καὶ εἴς λίρα.2
