Poured all morning heavily and I could only read + smoke. Wrote David + Helen that I would be home on Monday. About 3 it faired + I walked up Honister Hause: pulled a bunch of [not identified] Chloranthus + wild roses for Nancy. Finished a novel called “Priests of Progress” an antivivisection tirade1. Mr Oldham, the Ormiston girl + Miss Butcher left this morning + there were some new arrivals.
