Sun 16. [16 March 1902] Went in to Smyrna [Izmir] in the morning
driving to the station in a hard frost. Lunched at the Consulate where I
heard that 'Abd ur Rahman, whom I take to be 'Abd ul Aziz ibn
Rashid's uncle, had passed through and I might have seen him! Mrs
Cumberbatch, Mr C.'s mother was also there. Walked with Bertie and
a kavass to M. Gaudin's house where I spent 2 hours looking at his
museum. He has a lot of wonderful gems and some ornaments of
Mycenaean work mostly found near Pergamos [Bergama
(Pergamum)]. Also a fine collection of Tanagra beads some of them
most lovely. Then I went to tea with Mrs Hatton and found the
daughter and Mr Frank and Mr Hatton. Most warmly welcomed by
Monsieur Tom. In near 7 and before dinner Mr Herman Hatton came
to see me with a letter from Helen. After dinner read a novel
comfortably in my room before a fire.
