June 6th Thursday

Up late, after a most long realistic dream about going back to school, & a headache. Worked all day, checking Focus contributions, except for visit to Posada where gave instructions about window sills, stones in living room, cupboard in kitchen, removal of tiles[RG] a painted tile from where it didn't show for interior decoration.
This morning Sebastian brought up the remainder of the stones and also the log for Can Torrent.
Letter from Neville Barbour promising Semitic assistance, from Constable saying that Arnie Lawrence was editing the letters himself for another firm, from Liddell Hart.
Wrote to L.H. [Liddell Hart] telling him whose name, but asking whether mine had been in similar place: to Michael Roberts with list of poems for anthology & two more if he wanted, unpublished. To bed at 2 after posting letters.
