Wednesday 12/8 Theodolitic

Mr. Newsam's theodolite was put to use for the
first time today, as we ascended Calton Hill
to survey the cityscape, taking multiple readings
whilst being relentlessly photographed by
Japanese tourists. Dodging showers, a spell on
the Royal Mile ensued, immersed in the sonorous
skiffle of hang and horse-trading, followed by
an abortive visit to the beautiful city library.
Then, after a most pleasing renewal of
acquaintanceship with Extraordinary Girl, it was
out with the surveying apparatus once more,
taking advantage of a meteorological reversal,
before concluding the day with cocoa and a
much-needed early night. Fletcher the Butler
