Mon 10. [10 March 1902] Left at 8.10 - stormy day. Met Mr Herbert Whittall with his daughter Helen and his niece Rachel (Edward) and travelled down with them. Very pleasant journey, we played Bridge and talked. They had been up shooting in the Murad Dagh [Murat Dagi] and had been driven down by the snow. They often go there or to the Ak Dagh [Ak Dag]. They got out at Halkar Bunar and Mr Hatton and I reached Smyrna [Izmir] at 7.14. Went to the Hotel de la Ville washed and dined. Letter from Elsa saying Maurice had broken his collar bone.
