Diary sub-note: 1895. Relief of Chitral
S.R. 4.59, S.S. 7.1
Anne came. I went back to the dentist & had 2 teeth stopped. Got record of David’s speech. Rested all afternoon. Went to see “The Frog”. A very thrilling play.
Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Cocker Spaniel: THE COCKER SPANIEL. These merry and bright little dogs are the all-round favourites of the Spaniel family. The smallest of working gun-dogs, he was originally used for woodcock, whence his name. The question of correct size is vexed, but, generally speaking, cockers should be small enough to carry game. The first cockers were all black, but blue, red, roan and liver have now appeared, and a very beautiful golden variety.
