Wed 12. [12 March 1902] Stormy and cold. We sat round the tandour
and read and wrote. Left at 12.15; Mrs Whittall drove me into Smyrna
[Izmir] and to the Point station where I caught the 1 o'clock train to
Burnabat [Bornova]. M. van Heemstra met me and we had a cheerful
drive up to the farm where I was warmly welcomed. After tea Mrs VL
[Van Lennep], Evelyn and I went up to the Tumulus after which we
were just preparing to develop when the Van Heemstras came in so I
hurriedly dressed and we played Bridge till dinner and afterwards.
