Petty ill-lucks. Sore mouth, stopping lost from tooth, splinter in foot when answering a door to a bleating clergyman who addressed me as "Mr Page."
Went over Ch [Chapter] 3 of Ghost.
Laura doing letters & going over Norman's translation.1
Honor has a job at last.
Took coin to be made into brooch.
Black-out as air-raid precaution all over Tessin.
