Slight snow on the ground.

Dr Hole and I walked about South Hampstead this morning. It is an excellent neighbourhood and the houses are very good. Many new ones are in course of erection.

This afternoon Dr Hole went to Ely – and I went to Canonbury to see Aunt Emma. She told me that Tom Howe and his father had become reconciled since the death of Mrs Wells whose property goes to Tom and the rest.

I got back to Goldhurst Terrace at about 9 pm.

At Bournemouth yesterday I went over some new houses, one of which would suit us and Rosa very well as it has good rooms on the ground floor so that she could be accommodated without difficulty. The address is Burslem House near St Peter’s Church. Agents Keene & Son, 1 Regent Terrace., Bournemouth. It has a level entrance through a conservatory porch. Ground floor 4 rooms and WC. Lift from kitchen to what I must call “upper basement”. 2 staircases. South aspect. 5 bedrooms on each of two floors. W.C. on each floor: pleasure gardens at back.
