In the afternoon, repeated visit to Margaritha Durrieu's collection. In the
evening, reading by Hermann Stehr in the House of the Patriotic Society at
Trostbrücke, much to Beckett's displeasure. Afterwards – for the sake of urgently required consolation - a trip to "Himmelsleiter" ("Jacob's ladder"), Alter
Fischmarkt; one of the oldest ale-houses in Hamburg, boasting a guestbook
dating back to 1880.
