Ap 3. Friday.

Heavy cold, but only in head.
Got up late.
Gelat will not pursue the matter of the Dr's medicines so as not to get the Secretario implicated [sic: complicated]. Pedrissa, Son Bauza, & Boy will even if they make this arreglo1 have to apply to G for special water.
Checked Laziness. 4 pages ×××× [indecipherable] of Chapter XVI, Antigua.
Laura went over my poems, chose 3 for Epilogue. Scrapped Enemy in Saddle, Receipt for Moneys and ×××× [indecipherable] No One Can Guess. (Others all right for book publication) Did a little work on the 3 for Epilogue. Helped Laura choose hers.
L.H. reports complications about the book: Savage behind committee. Biog. [Biography] material all right, but letters objected to. Wrote to him. Will have to compromise, rather than not publish.
Found much more Epilogue than we had expected. Already half way to the next issue.
