8 December 1877 — Constantinople
Saturday. 8th [December 1877]. It was a pouring wet day so after lunch we proposed playing badminton & then that we should play tennis in the Court Yard so Henry & I went with Mr Kennedy & Mr Baring & put up the nets over the windows & had a short game. I found it more difficult than lawn tennis as one has to take the ball sometimes on the rebound from the wall. We dined at Ct Zichy’s, met the Dolez, Barings & d’Ehrenhoffs besides a good many of our Embassy.
