With her a minute or two after my hair was done, but I soon came to my room and wrote the following in pencil in my little notebook. She means to trouble everybody as little as she can – will do for herself. I gently said, well, if you can do better, I shall be very glad. I saw before [that] she was all wrong and guessed then the nature of her illness. It is astonishing how little I care. I was guilt less of thinking if her yesterday or this morning till my arrival. I was soon set right. How different my last reception on returning from Spain to Lady S[tuart] de R[othesay]!
