The wind is strong and fierce today, and very cold. I'm not particularly looking forward to going out through it.

We've moved on from the Magna Carta now (which I rather enjoyed, give or take all the vocabulary I didn't know in English, relating to the finer points of feudalism), to papal letters. I heard tales from last year's class of their difficulty and it's true, they are. The sentences are long, clause-intensive, and full of general words, legalese to cover all future instances of a situation.

Tutorial, however, will be full of quite specific vocabulary, to help make up for the generality of today's Latin.
