Wed 26. [26 February 1902] Arrived about 7. Mr Van Lennep and a
Kavass came out to meet me. Went to the Hotel de la Ville,
Fragiacomo; where I repacked, then shopped with Mr V.L., then to the
Consulate where I saw Mr Cumberbatch. Lunched and caught a train
at 1 to Malcajik Develi Keui where we arrived about 2. Drove up in a
covered cart over most impossible roads. Many coloured anemones
everywhere - about 4 miles up to the farm. Mrs VL and Evelyn
welcomed us and gave us tea after which we had an enchanting walk
up to the top of a hill where Mr VL is opening a big tumulus. Mr Bari
appeared at dinner; Mrs VL's brother. Developed photographs.
