17 March 1897 — Lutterworth
Wednesday. 17th [March 1897]. I remained late in bed & Eda & I worked at the MS. I also had my hair washed & did not get downstairs till lunch time. Eda & I worked again till tea time & I did not go out at all. Mr & Mrs Tufton came to tea. We dined at 7 & the family went to evening service. I sat at home & read. There was half a gale of wind, hail, thunder & lightening in the evening. A Mr Barto came over to preach this evening & just at the end of dinner the door opened & in walked a tall thin long haired wild looking man with a sack on his back & walked round the table & out again. This was Mr Barto who had brought Kate a sack of roots for her garden—& delights to be eccentric. He is clever but very odd—& looks like the pictures of Svengali in Du Maurier’s “Trilby”—in fact quite a character.
