21 July 1877 — Therapia
Saturday. 21st [July 1877]. Bathed before breakfast. Walked after breakfast up & down the terrace with Henry. Mr Sandison joined us & told us there was news that the Greeks had crossed the frontier to make war on Turkey. Hobart Pasha left us & went on board his ship to go into the Black Sea & take the command. He went away abt 7 to the ship wh was anchored opposite us—but he only got under weigh just as we were going to breakfast & we waved our handkerchiefs to him as he passed & we dipped flags to each other. It is said that he did not go beyond Kavak till later in the day. It was very stormy over the Black Sea & there were constant scuds. Henry went to town in the big caique. I worked the machine to get the bandages ready for the sick & wounded. Could not go out as it poured in the afternoon & there was a thunderstorm just after Henry returned. At 7.30 the Red + ship came up here & Mr Young & Dr Leslie came to bid us goodbye. They were too late to go out tonight but intend starting at day break tomorrow. Mr Elliott, Mr Woodford (messenger) & Mr Kennedy dined with us. Bandages made after dinner.
