Went over last chapter but two of O.S.S. [Old Soldier Sahib] Did a number of pp [pages] of Lars Porsena. Much rain in the night. Laura still hung up by poem, unable to think of proofs. Wrote to A.G. [Amy Graves] & to Liddell Hart, explaining things.

Finished Lars Porsena, working late.
Laura near end of poem.
