Masada 5 day

Very mild sunny ―springlike day.

No morning letters. From 9.30 ― to 4 ― worked hard on the large Masada. ― Letters from J. Harford, & W. Chappell. ―

Walked 4 to 5.30 ― (moon ―) by the dry roads & along commons: ― the number of walks here is delightful.

Dinner, alone. ―

Hum. the day is lone: ― pretty well for that ― but I am not very disgusted ― one is so comfortable here.

Evening: penned Zagori & Thucydides.

[Transcribed by Marco Graziosi from Houghton Library, Harvard University, MS Eng. 797.3.]
