Jan 6th Jenny's Birthday.

Not so well today: odd aches & pains & a hard cough. No appetite.
But went to Belleville and[RG], because Laura not well enough to leave house, and wished J. a happy birthday, with a prospect of soon changing her address. The L.A. had been talking foolishly to her about hostels.
Rest of day checking 2nd proofs of A Trojan Ending. Alan worked a little with Laura who is extremely sub1.
M me Balleydier sent bottle covers & a red-flannel cover for the pin-pillow I bought at Selfridge's for Jens Jensens' pins. I put the pins in.
