Finished A.F.G. proofs, except for things to ask Laura. Laura read me Troy all morning.
It rained all night and practically [sic: practicaly] all day. Headache all day.
From Bill Fuller, an excellently prepared revision of Chapter XII, from L.H. a letter enclosing the T.E. Trustees terms: impossible & insulting. Wrote to L.H. proposing to arrange for American piracy.
Worked over revision of Chapter XII pleased to find how little F. had found it necessary to alter.
Rain all night.
