16 July 1897 — Bere Cottage, Bere Regis, Dorset
Friday. 16th [July 1897]. Wrote letters in my room till 11. At 12 I started off in the poney carriage & drove myself to Whatcombe to lunch with the Mansel Pleydells. It was a tremendously hot day—the poney was rather lame & very lazy & I did not get to Whatcombe till past 1.30. Mrs Pleydell received me very kindly. She is a still very handsome woman & marvellously young looking & nicely dressed—lively & agreeable. They had with them a young Mr Stewart Morton staying—a relation of a very different type to my host & hostess—with a singularly low type of countenance. At 4 my poney carriage came from the stables & I set off for Bere arriving there quicker than I came—the poney knowing he was turned homewards– Dined at 6 & went fishing in Doctor’s hatch but caught 0.
