No audiencia2 after all. It has been postponed until June because of Fascist trials (son of Son Morages in jail) & may fail then. Only Boy and the Señor3 of Pedrissa are still in and the latter comes from France next week.

We are having fires in the evening.
A close day. There'll be no fruit this year worth mentioning.
