Masada 14 day
Yet I worked on the Masada ― but until 1 or 2 P.M. not at all well.
Got Miss Dent to nail list on the doors &c., & make the bedroom warmer, ― & curtains heavy.
Ὦ Μαύραι ἡμέραι! Τὶ θὰ κάμωμεν; ((O dark days! What are we to do? (NB).))
Ἄφισα διὰ πολλὰς ἡμέρας, ἡ παράφρασις τοῦ Θουκυδίδου: δὲν ἐμπορῶ νὰ κάμω τίποτες. ((I have abandoned for many days now the translation of Thucydides: I cannot do anything (NB).))
Σχεδον ἐπαράσθη ὁ χρόνος. ((The year is almost over (NB).))
