|Commentary:||“January 28…Made a sketch Semo – During the drawing of it – I talked to him about his going – and of how I wished he could remain at least a day longer – nothing was said for a while – then as I was about finishing (about 10-) he said “If you want to draw the old woman [see #208], I will go tomorrow.” (trip diaries) See #194 for further commentary.|
