Saturday. 1st December [1877]. Dr Neylan called to ask for hospital things. Mr Millingen came about Dorcas Society. After luncheon I drove out with Henry we called on the Condouriotis & found them in. I went on to call on Mme Helmy Pasha. She is Kiamil Bey’s daughter speaks French—says she lives à l’Européan with her husband & children dining all together & being served by a man. There were no jalousies to the windows only a lot of plants to make a screen. M. d’Ehrenhoff & Mr Christich called & I gave them tea.
