Tues. 18. [18 September 1894] Elsa and I walked into the town. Left
at 10.40 Frontier 12.15, lunch Belfort 12.40 where I got Lourdes and
read it with wild interest all the rest of the way. Tea at Nancy. Reims
7.30. Our inn was just opposite the Cathedral - the Lion d'or. We met
the Clarks, father and daughter - the horrors! She was smoking in the
courtyard of the inn. Mother, the babes and I walked and trammed
about Reims in the moonlight which fell beautifully on all the southern
side of the Cathedral; we passed the charming Hotel de Ville and the
Roman Arch. To bed at 10.
