Friday 20th. Stayed at home.

Saturday 21st. Went into the park.

Sunday 22nd. Went to church this morning, & in the afternoon we went to Westminster Abbey. A magnificent & beautiful building. The organ & voices made me think that I was in heaven or in the seventh place of bliss, we sat in Poet's corner. I saw some of our fellow passengers, they did not recognize me.

Monday 22nd. I am getting lazy. We went to the Albert Hall to an afternoon concert, enjoyed myself so much wish that I could always hear such beautiful music.

Tuesday 23th. I am at last at school, a dreary place. How I wish I were at home again.

December. Wednesday 18th. The school broke up today for the winter holidays. I go to Dunain tomorrow. I wonder if I will get a prize this evening. 9 P.M. I have got the 1st prize for music, I can't contain myself for the very joy at getting it.

Thursday 19th. Started for Dunain this morning Agnes met me at the station. I go to Euston station this evening at 8. to go Scotland.
