Wednesday March 27. [27 March 1907] Left London in a thick fog.
Terrible crowd of people at the station. Among them I presently
distinguished Brian Lascelles with a small Harrow boy in tow, a
Russian Boris de Chrustchoff. They are both going to Athens
[Athinai]. Met Lady Ottoline Morrell on the boat who introduced her
husband. Mabel Lowther also on board and probably heaps of other
people I knew. Near an hour late at Paris. Drove over to the Gare de
Lyon, got my sleeper and dined with Mr Lascelles and Boris. Major
Archer appeared on the scene. Shared my sleeper with a girl, Miss
Charteris going to Egypt.
