text: Did nothing special, having many letters to write. I got some washing back from the dhobi. The price had to be worked out on a basis of "if there were 100 pieces it would cost 8 rupees". There were 15 pieces, so I paid 1R 4 annas. Thunderstorm & heavy rain in the afternoon, clearing later. Hutton & I went to tea with the Wrights.
