Clear, fine & generally rather cold (wearing light undervest, cotton shirt, pullover, coat, light pants & grey flannel bags), & do not find this too much.
Night before last the cock pigeon, which was only just regaining its power of flight, disappeared, evidently destroyed by one of the Arabs’ dogs. Bought another yesterday (Frs. 6.). This one’s wings are all right. Put him for the night in the cage, in the morning found the hen outside. Opened the door & they flew off together.
