Feb 9th Sunday

Cold wind: but not quite so cold.
Karl returned.
Wrote to Harrison Smith, F & F, Honor etc.
Tea to Junyers, where after a long talk we saw Clotilde's pictures on the way to Barcelona Exhibition & bought one (price unknown) of two cab roig [sic: cab roix] fish against young geraniums.
In the evening I translated a passage of Boethius into English, and the same passage into English from K.Alfred's Anglo-Saxon version: for Epilogue translation1 study.
At 662: got a double-tailor – the first ever scored.
