Altered Remembering War (8th version). Cross-copied Laura's Emmie1 and her rewriting of Len's Movement as Language: queries and suggestions.
Made out sequence for ending Antigua which is done roughly about 1/3 of the way: uncertain yet whether worth while finishing it. It was originally started during money shortage as a means of extracting higher royalties from Harrison Smith for C.the God [Claudius the God].
Sebastian grafted nectarine shoots on two[RG] three wild-almond trees.
Water failed for first time: not[RG] due to pump of motor, just not to [RG] too little in the deposito2, as we thought: though only a little over a metre of water Visit from Renaults of Cala Ratxada[RG] left Miguel the carpenter fixed the[RG] there.
Cold again: fires resumed.
Saw the first grape-hyacinth.
