27 September 1911 — Ca’ Capello, Venice
Wednesday. 27th [September 1911]. The heat has returned & the fine weather. A good deal of excitement on the prospect of war between Italy & Turkey over Tripoli. I went in the afternoon to see Cav. Arbib whose 2 daughters are married & settled there. He says they have both fled to Malta. One accompanied by her husband & one without hers. He is in the employ of the Italian Govt. His wife wants her father to telegraph to him to leave his post & join her. He asked my advice & I gave it—that he should stick to his post & do his duty to his country. I went on to the hospital & there met Dr Collisson who is anxious to give concerts in aid of the “Waifs & Strays” in the hotels here—but finds there is not a soul to go to them. He is a queer looking little man—& dresses queerly for a clergyman—a white suit & green tie topped with a sailor hat & gaudy ribbon.
