Aug 2. [2 August 1895] Left at 10.20, Mother, Elsa, Molly Papa and I. Got out at Lincoln where we stopped 3 hours and saw the Cathedral. Very splendid, right up on top of a hill. Great facade, half Norman with Early English Arcaded flanks beautifully fitted on. Very magnificent inside. The town also was interesting, very steep streets with charming old houses. Started again 5.30 dined in the train with a delightful man who was coming from Scotland. Talked of bicycles and other exercises. Reached Harwich at 9.30, Hugo arrived 10. Very smooth crossing.
