Jaipur, India

Thursday, May 2, 1929

Haven’t done a thing all day except stay at the hotel and read English history from William III and Mary through Edwards I, II, III, and IV, to Queen Victoria. Is a good book and gives the personal lives of these rulers.

Still feel so-so, but hope to go to Amber tomorrow just the same. This yellow jauntis sounds romantic enough—”Oh, I was stricken with the yellow jauntis while in the tropics,” but in practice is a pain and bother.

No responsibility is taken for drawings of any gods or other queer pictures herein. And the smeary ink marks come from holding pages with sweaty hands—not sloppiness. Bought a small ivory elephant today for 18¢. Shade temperature 109°.
