[Interlacken—Saturday, 7 August 1869]
Saturday. Raining still. Lissie paints, I read “Hyperion” aloud, Mabel carves the head of her Alpen-Stock. We three J. M. & I think of England. Dinner is like going to the theatre, music & all.
Tyroleans come in costume in the evening to sing to us. They play on the Zither and Claraçin.
