Bob Maxwell just come in. Been out all day. Rode to 9th in a.m., lunched, and walked back with Shill. Roads like iron, splendid for walking. There are still 100 who have been out all the time, and not been home. Its perishing cold tonight, and my diminutive French stove has gone out. John Keane turned up for dinner in great form, and we had a good bukh.
