Scope and content

66 Due Macelli [on mourning stationery] - Is disappointed that 'Il Ramo d'Oro' is still not published; when Lauro left Rome on 15 Oct. he entrusted her with the last reading of the proofs; has visited, telephoned, and written the editor [Alberto Stock] to no avail, but in his defense the work of taking over the publishing house in such disorder has been a huge job; after fifty years in the country is still not used to the easy way people promise with no intention of keeping their word; hopes Sir James' investiture ceremony went off well; in the villages about Ariccia a pastry in the form of a man and a woman and several beasts is made, and wonders if these are what is left of the Manii; extensive excavations are taking place near Nemi and an imperial palace has been unearthed, and there is talk of draining the lake to get at the Roman wrecks, the ships of Tiberius; remembers Paul Loyson: 'Dear, dear Paul, bright figure in what seems now a past incarnation'; Lauro is having great success in his lecture-tour and is now in California.
