Thurs 10. [10 July 1902] Got up at 12 and started at 1 AM. But when
we got to the Schˆnb¸hl Alp the clouds began to blow up. We waited
some time under a rock till the rain came. Ulrich went down to the
Chalets to see if we could take shelter there and came back saying
dubiously "Dere is pig." However we went down and found one
without pig and lay on some hay till past 4 when the rain and thunder
decided us to give up the expedition. Got back about 5 and went to
bed till lunch time. It rained all the afternoon. I finished L'Etape and
began Sir A Lyall's English in India and was rather bored and cold.
