spend the whole morning shopping, after lunch more shopping, get frightfully knocked about at the Gallerie Lafayette, never seen such crowds at a sale before in my life. Drag our weary bodies home to tea, then start off to see the new school, which seems very nice indeed, + the directress positively sweet!! knock against very fierce look[ing] apache [the French period term for dangerous street ruffian], feel my days are at an end, but he evidently does not fancy freaks! visit Father McCarthy at College des Irlandais in the latin quarter go over part of the college, very nice too! bring him back to dinner + spend a most delightful evening! write p.c’s [postcards]. turn in for the night.
