‘Mr Harvey presents his compliments to Mrs Lister and is sorry he has not time to call upon her. She will, however, be able to get very good information at the Hotel Saint Etienne about Spain and Mr H- will be happy to sign her passport if necessary – Bayonne, July third 18 and thirty-eight.’ What are our consuls for? To take care of the trade and merchants, not to attend to amateur travellers like me. Well, I must bring letters from England or start from Copenhagen where I am known. Remember this.
