Hannover. Saturday 3rd May 1914.
Sent my trunk round to Lahmayers. Said good-bye to mother – hated to part with her – she has been so good to me – a mother in a million. Olly (Comtesse de Ligny) told me that if I ever needed money, I was to ask her and she would always help me.
Lunched at Lahmayers and went to the races with Cunard. We got on very well together. He lost something like 150 marks and I lost about 35 marks. I owe him 10/-. I met Frau and Leutnant Oemigke. They asked me to come and see them – but it was hardly an invitation. Edward Cunard and I returned at 8.0 p.m. I took some snapshots of him – I hope they will turn out well.
