Thursday 3rd January 1901-

Had a rather better night, though some broken sleep & was not up & dressed till 12. — Signed some things & then went out in the garden chair, Lenchen & Thorawalking with me. It was fine & bright. — Saw Sir A. Bigge about some War Office affairs. — Had not much appetite. — At ½ p. 3 took a short drive with Lenchen & Ismay S. It was very fine but grew a little foggy. — Dictated some letters to Beatrice. — After I had had my little supper, Harriet P. came for ½ an hour & read to me, after which I dictated the Journal to Thora. —
