15 December 1897 — Ca’ Capello, Venice
Wednesday. 15th December [1897]. The V. Consul Signor Zuccato came to see me at 10 o’cl to ask me whether I had read an article in today’s Gazetta di Venezia which gave an account of the New Anglo Italian company against which he pronounced very strongly & hoped the Venezia Murano had not joined. He advised me to send it to my friends which I did & I wrote Mr Rate a long letter to tell him all Zuccato had told me. After lunch I went out with Nela to the Piazza to look for Christmas presents but was not successful. Home to tea & Baron & Bss Haan, Countess Canevaro came & also Iduna. They all talked fast & loud—& seemed very happy. My servants were all very tiresome today—& generally gave me trouble—Pasquale—Regina & my maid Annie. I had a letter today from my sister Kate to tell me that her husband has been named Eton Chaplain to the Queen—a great delight to us all—for to be in anyway connected with such a Queen is indeed an honor & a joy.
