Sat 5. [5 April 1902] After lunch photographed Dora Lydia and the
whole family. Shopped and came home to see Paulina and Ibrahim,
children of Abu Nimrud who paid me a visit. Then to tea with Dora's
mother - Dora was just going off to the American College at Beyrout
[Beyrouth (Beirut)] where they teach her all knowledge - I wonder what
she will make of it! Funny to see her botany cahiers with the Latin
names written out in Arabic and the old Syrian peasant woman her
mother looking on and asking me whether it was necessary for a
woman to know these things. 2 clerics to dinner, one a Syrian and the
other vicar of an East End parish. I think his name is Ross. Met the
1st officer of the Cleopatra in the town when I flew down at dusk to post
