Friday 4th January 1901 -

“Had a better night & took less draught, but still unfortunately, I slept longer than I wished. – Signed, & went out at ¼ to 1 with Lenchen. Wished Christian, Thora & Louie goodbye, Lenchen stays on with us for the present. – In the afternoon drove with Harriet P. & Evelyn Moore, the latter with Sylvia Edwardes, have succeeded Mary Hughes & Doris Vivian. A fine afternoon, but rather hazy. – From not having been well, I see so badly, which is very tiresome. Heard by telegram that Ld Roberts’ reception in London yesterday, had gone off extremely well, though the weather had been dull. – Had a telegram from Ld Kitchener, which was satisfactory. – Spent rather an uncomfortable afternoon, & felt so weary & tired. – Dictated to Lenchen. – Ismay S. read to me after my supper, & Beatrice came later & played to me a little on the piano.-“© Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 2012 © Bodleian Libraries © ProQuest
