7 October 1877 — Besika Bay, on board the Helicon
Sunday. 7th [October 1877]. We continued to toss so that I thought it more prudent to remain in my berth reading wh I did till after 12 when we anchored in the Golden Horn. We should have arrived before 8 in the morng had the weather been fine—but we had had a rough night & one of our boats had been carried away. We got up to Therapia abt 3 & it was blowing so it was not easy to land. We were glad to get to the fireside & there remain for the rest of the day. Mme Parnis called. Had Mr Jenkins M.P. to dinner & his wife.
