Mon. 7 [7 July 1902] Woke at 9, jumped up and did my packings and shoppings and we started at 11 for Rosenlaui which we reached at 1. It was very hot and I felt awfully tired. In the afternoon Frl. Kuntze and Mr Hasler came in and I made his acquaintance. At 4 I walked up hill for an hour on to the glacier for training. The flowers most lovely. Sodanella, white ranunculus, big gentian and small, silene in great pink patches, globe flower, alpen rose - all heavenly. I rejoiced. Mr Coolidge was dining with Hasler and Co but I did not know who he was and therefore did not aborder him.
