QuotationYesterday it got cold in the afternoon. Rain, sleet, snow. I walked in the woods, came home, built a fire, made tea, read a good urbane book of Viscount [John Julius] Norwich on Athos [Mount Athos (New York, 1966)]. He thinks Athos is in hopeless shape and doomed to end completely. I suppose he is right.
