Hot sun, & brisk gale, sweet even. Dusty beyond comparison. Watered away five hogsheads of water. Stoparola has five eggs. Rooks live hard: there are no chafers. Barley & oats do not come up; the fields look naked. Some pairs of swifts always build in this village under the low thatched roofs of some of the meanest cottages: & as there fails to be nests in those particular houses, it looks as if some of the same family still returned to the same place.
