Have been walking all about the city trying to find old familiar places but everything nearby [has?] changed, however the University people & the North & South buildings are unchan -ged on the outside at least I tried to peek into our old rooms on the corner & also tried to find the place where we went in bathing but could hardly identify the spot, our duties as jurors are about done so we expect to be allowed to return to home & work tomorrow.
