Went over typescript of third chapter of Antigua . Draft sequence of Chapter VIII
Pepe Salas came with Gelat: took down the motor.
Pepe brought estimate for a new room to be built over the patio: 17O8 pesetas.
Took down printed sheets & pressed them, ready for folding and sending off.
Corrected proofs of Focus with Laura.
To Margarita the modista with Laura: then Schwarz & Strenge to tea: then visit to McCormacks.
Gelat can get olive posts for the vines, so this is better than the concrete
