Saturday 12th January 1901 -

‘Had a good night, & could take some breakfast better. — There was a dense fog & no ships could cross. — Took an hour’s drive at ½ p. 2 with Lenchen. It was very foggy, but the air was pleasant. — Had some food when I came in & rested. — Afterwards little Leopold played charmingly on the violin, Beatrice accompanying him & then she & Minnie Cochrane played some very nice duets. — Took a “lait de poule”, then signed & dictated to Lenchen. — Harriet read to me after my supper & Lenchen & Beatrice came up afterwards. —‘
