Proof reading

Friday, August 19th., Villa des Nefliers, Fontainebleau.

All proofs of "Clayhanger" came on Wednesday morning, so that after 9 o'clock in the morning I did nothing on Wednesday and Thursday except correct them. 575 pages. I finished them on Thursday afternoon. Errors in the typescript made them very amazing. A great deal of it is as good as anything I have done. I noticed the far too frequent use of the word "extraordinary", but I loathe altering a work once it is done - no mistake about that.
