The following notes were written at odd hours and strange places -- some in times of stress, others in times of enjoyment -- most when the writing thereof postponed for a few moments more odious tasks. This is not a literary piece, but just a sketchy reminder in outline for of all of the then forbidden things that I would have liked to have written about to Jane and the family.

By bus to Bulloch and Loch Lomond via the “low road.” Spent most of the afternoon on the Loch in the company of those three irrepressible Irishmen, McCallion, Kennedy, and Radley. Again we had tea -- this time on the opposite shore of the Loch with three young ladies from Glasgow. Back home again via Glasgow -- which is a good city to pass through -- but not to stay in.
