Friday 11th January 1901 -

'A better night, but felt very tired. — Out in the garden chair after 1, Lenchen Beatrice walking with me. Very fine & like spring. Went as far as Barton & back. Felt so weary that I did not go out again in the afternoon, but slept for more than 2 hours. — Afterwards Lenchen & Beatrice played duets to me, very pretty things, — the "Gondoliers", Gounod's Ballet music from "Faust", &c. Then dictated some letters to the former & signed. — Harriet read to me after my supper, & then Lenchen & Beatrice came up to say good night. —'
