[Ima and friends visited the Tate Museum, where she wrote detailed, dutiful descriptions of every painting they saw.]
Tate Gallery. Put on a voile gown “the better to see” --thin yoke, --sneezed & knew a cold was coming. . . .
[The next day was her 25th birthday, but she did not mention it in her diary. Did she keep it to herself?]
London--July 10th--Windsor Castle. Drove over--coached to Windsor - Left our trunks - two apiece!- at the hotel, taking only suitcases for our tour up through Scotland. Just as we got in. . . down came torrents of rain. But we went on just the same though it was terribly cold, too. Started at 10:30 got to Windsor 2:30. St. George’s Chapel with Princess Charlotte momument & Henry VIII burial place. White Tower where the order of the garter organized, building in which Merry Wives of Windsor was first played. Then the beautiful view towards Eton from the steps--where I turned my ankle & scrambled up by Mr. Scott’s coat sleeves. Dreadfully caught more cold. Holbein’s portrait (one of them) Henry VIII hangs in the castle. . . . .Started for Oxford at 5:55 P.M. There at 9:00.
And Mr. Scott was no doubt happy to help.
