Nov 22nd Tuesday

Old man sawing wood for us.
Watt phoned that I would have to go to England to sign sheets of Lawrence books in time for Xmas [Christmas] publication. I refused, & he arranged that a Miss Nernie would bring them to Paris for me to sign there.
That clouded the day, & it rained heavily too.
Laura working mostly with David: & wrote letters in my bedroom most of the night.
Evening walk with her along Boisgervilly road.
