Today was a holiday. Mr. Gould used it for clearing up arrears. The Doctor spent it in bed with a sore throat. Chapman, Nepean and Richardson climbed a hill to the South-East of the city. Chapman actually climbed several hills but one was enough for the other two.

Kusho Namdun La a favourite, of the late Dalai Lama called on Mr. Gould.
