No letters or paper. Wrote to T. Cooper to send no more Daily Telegraphs.
Came the 2 Pillischer Lamps; vastly joyful “arrangement” ― as are all here ― barring the Newspaper posts. I have written today to say no more daily papers are to be sent.
Worked hard till 3. ― finishing all the 2nd process of the 155 drawings already begun: γελωείδες πράγμα εἶναι.

Home, & dined at 7. At 9 ― having heard G. read ― I am going to prepare for tomorrow. ―
16th day of 240 Tyrants. Got through 11 2nd process ― being 155 in all ― 2nd process completed.
154 ― one being Gussie Bethells!
