November 23rd 1936

Diary sub-note: 1407. Duke of Orleans assassinated

There were lots of pictures of David.
Went into the town with Mlle Pasch & Leslie. Daddie sent me £2 which I had changed in the town. Bought a doll for Joy & a choc caldron* for Mlle Hartmann.

*Miss-spelling of cauldron. The smashing of chocolate cauldrons is a tradition at the up-coming Genevan festival Fête de l’Escalade. It’s a fascinating tradition; find out more about it here https://cuisinehelvetica.com/2017/12/12/smashing-a-chocolate-cauldron-for-genevas-fete-de-lescalade/
