Nov 27 Sunday.

After supper at Étoile1 we collected Priour from his uncle's and came home. Started at 9 p.m. Met a lot of fog and did not get back till [until] 4.30 am. Not much sleep in car. David & Dorothy had lit fires in bedrooms for us. We slept till [until] lunch-time when some of us had breakfast and some a bread & cheese lunch.
By 4 o'clock we were ready to start work again.
First review of my poems2; in T.L.S – peremptory and stupid.
