Jan. 5. 1905 Thursday. [5 January 1905] Left London at 10 - streaming morning. But it cleared and I cd sit on deck. Roughish passage. Got to Boulogne about 2 and lunched. Full train. Paris 6.15. Went to see Reinach in his new house in the Rue Trakter. We talked diligently for 1/2 an hour and he embraced me warmly when I left! Dined at the hotel St Romain and got to the Gare de Lyon at 9. Full train. A nice woman in my sleeper, a Mrs Peake, wife I gather of an Egyptian soldier whom she is going out to join. She has her brother Mr Osborne with her.
