July 11 Monday

Working over yesterday's poems1.
Laura dictated about 16 letters to Beryl.
In the evening Frances & Ronnie McCall arrived & had supper with us Chez Metayer on their way back to Canada.
We believe we will see them again – probably in Majorca.
They brought a copy of Groddek's2 book: but for us it is Gradek3.
