July 27 Wed

To Montauban with Dorothy: wheeling punctured bicycle. Just as we got back the other tire blew out.
In the evening there were bees in a log in the fire & Dorothy's foot got stung.
Laura: Aristotle1 and letters
Figs stewed in butter, then wine.
Rain: fires in evening.
Laura went over some poems with me.
I take charge of lamps.
