Yesterday after getting our things moved around to the new place, I went swiming, the water was more agitated than I have ever seen it here before. Did not stay in very long as it was rather cold without the sun shining.

Have read the first book of "Thus Spoke Zarathustra. I like it very much. think that it is very fine, am sure you will like most of it; you most read it. I want to do so again, perhaps we could [[strikethrough]] read it [[/strikethrough]] [[insertion]] do so [[/insertion]] together.

Did Lee mention anything about the studio key that he wrote to me about? Also in your package of letters did you get the one from doctor Mackenzes? I hope you got all the letter there were about four envelopes full of them. Sent Lucius your card this morning and one from myself, Miss Cockcroft had a letter from her in which she is very enthusiastic about Polpere. She says that A.S. is doing very good work.

The other night there was a large catch of sardines made. some of the boats had as many as twenty thousand apiece. I did not see any of them come in as I did not go to the key that morng. There is talk about a strike again; when they bring in a large catch of sardines they only get half as much for them as when they they do not catch as many. I think that they are very foolish for bringing in as many as they do; if they threw half of their catch back when they make a large one they would make just as much money.

Next Sunday there is going to be a large Fete here. I hope you will be here for it as there is going to wrestling ets.

Am going to the studio now to work, I do not think I will do anything that is worth while until I know whether you are pregnant or not.

With love.
