Tuesday May 12

Eyes very tired.
Have reached galley 76 in Epilogue (3/4 of the way) and done a little Convalescent Conversations. Burdekin book came.
Roses at their best. No sign of any pinks yet, & few carnations.
Walked round the village via stepping-stones & Son Bujosa. The stepping-stones were under water but Solomon1 rushed bravely over.
Boira & flies.
Said goodbye to Schw & Str. who are going to Switzerland for ten days.
Made out money-prospects. This T.E. business has made a lot of difference to them.
