28 April 1877 — Constantinople
Saturday. 28th [April 1877]. There was a shocking fire at Stamboul in the Fanar where the poor Greeks live. At 3 o’clock it was awful to see there was a huge mass of flame. There was a great fire in the same quarter a fortnight ago & 400 houses were burnt. At 3 I went out driving & fetched Mrs Baring. Henry had an official reception of the Ministers &c. I went to see Mrs Parnis, Mrs Crawford, Mrs Millingen. Came home & had tea with Mrs Baring. Called also on Lady Strangford at the hotel. Mr Jocelyn & Mr Smijth dined with us.
