Fri 21. [21 March 1902] Cloudy in the morning but a lovely afternoon.
We ran down the S coast of Asia Minor, beautiful hills with snow on
them. Printed and toned photographs; after tea sat on deck and read
Mr Browne's Bubi book. Mr Paton turns out a great dear, so sensible
and nice. He is a Dante devotee. We reached Mersina [Mersin
(IÁel)], beautifully situated on a plain under the Taurus [Toros Daglari]
at 6 - it was Bairam - pratica nicete! so we lay in the bay most
comfortably all night. After dinner played whist with Mr P. [Paton] the
doctor whom I cordially dislike and the little[?] black Austrian who is a
good little sort. Then chess with the Austrian and won.
