August 13.—Hurrah! at Broadstairs. Very nice apartments
near the station. On the cliffs they would have been double the
price. The landlady had a nice five o’clock dinner and tea
ready, which we all enjoyed, though Lupin seemed fastidious because
there happened to be a fly in the butter. It was very wet in the
evening, for which I was thankful, as it was a good excuse for going
to bed early. Lupin said he would sit up and read a bit.
