Wed Jan 25

I was up at 9 and we worked together again on the letter1, which is will be[RG] about 4000 words, all day. I did not do Dictionary.
In the evening I went to bed to rest (shoulder still painful) but did another 4 hours at night on letter,[RG] with Alan & Beryl helping.
The news from Spain, where Franco is 1 ¼ miles from Barcelona, does not disturb us somehow[RG]; the French & English greatly disturbed & serious talk of French occupying Minorca and Spanish Morocco.
