Annual General Meeting at the Club today.  It wasn't very excited, save when Robertson started to take slice out of Croall.  There were several motions came up, but like the old Hawaiian hula-hula, they were all lost.

Nothing special today save the mail from home, a cable re the sale, and a consequent endeavor to hurry up old [[Dejpar??]] before the news got around.

They never dream it means, in English, to humph one's self. 

Smith bot 2 teeth today at a ridiculous price, - cut one clean,- 167 dibs, not so bad, wot?
