Monday, 29th March 1914 [sic]
Walked down “Unter den Linden” to the “Zeughaus.” Saw the changing of the guard. Walked down the Siegesallee. Had lunch at the Bristol Hotel. We went to see the baby “Jack” and fetched £20 from the Dresdener Bank.
I dressed and went to see “Violetta” or rather “La Traviata” at the “Königliches Opernhaus”.
Dined at 11 o’clock at the hotel.
Remarks
1. Zeughaus has a marvelous collection of old German arms and uniforms. Bismarck’s uniform. Beautiful Paintings of the Danish Austrian and French wars (1865-1871).
2. The Sieges allee is a wonderful avenue of all the Brandenburger Kings. The Emperor is extremely proud of this avenue.
