text: Today not much was happening. Again we were waiting for the Ang of Chi but he did not come until very late at night. In the morning I wrote a few letters because a man was going to Borjan. Then I played for some time, trying to teach the bird to eat which was unexpectedly successful. Then I was busy putting some notes in order.
