Ap 25 Saturday.

Lovely day.
First white climbing roses.
First passion flower.
The anemones still go on.
Antigua gone over as far as p [page] 176 and all insertions gummed in. Will probably reach 270 pp [pages] or more.[RG]
To sea, but did not bathe. The last two days too rough, today too sea-weedy.
Marjorie & Allan came to the Fonda from Soller. We had supper there & afterwards saw a 1910 (?) Chaplin film, about motor races.[RG]
Solomon1 now keeps faithfully to heel all the time.
Laura started actually writing 'Troy' again. She is bad with throat still but continues to smoke and won't see a Doctor.
