GWL 22nd April 1919

“Warm.  To-day the local authorities performed their famous trick of cutting off the water! Why heaven only knows.  It hurts us, perhaps, more than the inhabitants, because they do not wash.  The hot weather has rather disorganised the Princess’ family and household.  This morning I arrived at 11.30 for my lesson and they were all still n bed! So I sat in the dining room until what time the good people chose to get up.  Comic crowd.  They lead a pretty hectic existence, I think – people always running in and out.  Here the only time at which you do not call is between 3.30 & 4.30 PM.  Any other old time will do, up to about midnight.  I am afraid the Colonel is very fed up with this place.”
