Feb 19 Saturday.

Finished first act of Trojan Ending
Karl fetched from Mr Mills 500 small plain-glass marbles to mix with the coloured one in the glasses1 (3/-2) and a coral whistle for Bix Lye3.
Walk down Edgeware Road: saw a street-market and a fire in a house alongside, with fire-engines.
Rather a lazy day.
Thinking about publicity for poems.
