[Ragatz—Tuesday, 17 August 1869]

Tuesday 17 August. All were so well the next morning which was a pretty clear one that I was glad we had the Punch on the whole. I don’t doubt that it kept us all from colds. We walked to Pfeffers Bade and back, a good stretch, pitied the poor wretches who think it best to steep themselves therein, and returned refreshed and grateful for our own bodies. Poor M.B. how she has steeped there!!

Tuesday night. Gloated over some lovely embroideries done by the peasants here which we bought for presents. Played Nincomtwitch again and went to bed where we could not sleep very well. The place seems full of German Jews and is not at all a well kept hotel in spite of its lovely situation.
