String day 4
Several conversations along the line today, both with friends passing by and with strangers. In several, the subject of breaches to the line and whether to repair. The discipline of daily repair is appealing, though would be time consuming. Five breaches today and only a small portion of the route has been strung. Also appealing to move forward, not look back, to let the tatters stand. More on this, but though I've repaired the breaches thus far, I'm leaning toward letting them stand. Also in conversation, the practice in some Jewish communities of stringing homes together on the Sabbath. Thirdly, the question of sending telegraph signals through the line.
