This book is not only a journal of Miller's time in Greece but also of his friendship with George Seferis. Henry called it his 'log of the Immaculate Conception'. He started it in Hydra and finished it in Delphi.
Seferis said 30 years later that Miller told him:
"My dear George, you’ve been so kind to me, and I want to give you something.”
“Look here, Henry. But after all, I know that you are going to write a book, and you cant’t write the book—I mean you might need your notes.”
“No. All those things are here,” said Miller pointing to his head.
I offered to make a typescript copy for him.
“No,” he said, “a gift must be whole.”
Well, that’s a splendid way of behaving, I think. And I shall never forget that. From: Keeley, Modern Greek Poetry 200.
