As I had expected, the weather was bad all day yesterday. At breakfast no news but (except) what was in the papers. Janssen had got over liis disappointment of yesterday, Mrs. Janssen and her daughter were talking busily with each 5 other, and were occupied with all sorts of notes and notebooks.
They had to go "to town" — that is to say, to Amsterdam; there and back before dinner!
"We dine at half-past six to-day", said Mrs. J.; "so you 10 gentlemen have a long day together and can talk to your heart's content."
"Bad weather, Mrs. J., for an expedition to town", I said.
"Come, come!" replied Janssen; "we have become country-people now: we don't mind the weather; the ladies 1 bmust go to Amsterdam, for the day after to-morrow we [shall] have some friends (people) to dinner, and my wife has some shopping to do. Vegetables are difficult to get here; there is hardly anything of the kind here."
