Sat July 27 [27 July 1907] On to C'ple [Istambul (Constantinople)]
early, saw McClean and did a lot of odd jobs. Back to lunch and at 3
onto the Imogen and off to Prinkipo [B¸y¸kada]. Very pleasant. No
one on board but Captain Taylor, the doctor and Mr Hodgson.
Anchored off Prinkipo and Sir N [Nicholas O'Conor] and I went for a
walk and called on the Pearses - he was away. Izzet has a big house
here. Bridge till midnight.
