Epilogue off.
Transcribed C.F.V. .
Walk to road with S. [Salamo] 1 & Carl. S. [Salamo] got a sheep by the ear & had to be separated by beating his jaw-muscles with a stone. Lunch at Viña Vieja (Gordon & Mary in Palma) then to see Posada from outside and bakery. On return to Canellun felt giddy. Anchovies at lunch. Went to village: to Can Juni; there are more plums and apricots than I expected. On return felt worse, went to bed.
