A YOUNG GIRL'S DIARY

August 2nd.

August 2nd. In my letter I did not say anything to Ada about our having
been ennobled, or as Dora says re-ennobled, since the family has been
noble for generations; she will find out about it soon enough when she
comes here. Mother keeps on saying: Don't put on such airs, especially
about a thing which we have not done anything particular to deserve. But

A YOUNG GIRL'S DIARY 

August 1st.

August 1st. I got a letter from Ada to-day. She sends me many happy
returns, for she thinks it is on the 1st of August, and then comes the
chief thing. She is frightfully unhappy. She writes that she wants to
escape from the cramping environment of her family, she simply can't
endure the stifling atmosphere of home. She has been to St. P. to
see the actor for whom she has such an admiration, he heard her recite
something and said she had real dramatic talent; he would be willing

A YOUNG GIRL'S DIARY

July 31st.

July 31st. Yesterday was my birthday, the thirteenth. Mother gave me a

collars; from Father, A Bad Boy's Diary, which one of the nurses lent
Hella when she was in hospital; it's such a delightfully funny book, but
Father says it's stupid because no boy could have written all that, a
new racquet with a leather case, an awfully fine one, a Sirk, and tennis
balls from Dora. Correspondence cards, blue-grey with silver edge.

A YOUNG GIRL'S DIARY 

July 29th.  

July 29th. It's sickeningly dull here, I simply don't know what to do;
I really can't read and swing the whole day long, and Dora has become as
dull as she used to be; that is, even duller, for not only does she
not quarrel, but she won't talk, that is she won't talk about
certain
things
. She is perfectly crazy about the baby of the young couple
in the mezzanin; he's 10 months old, and I can't see what she sees to
please her in such a little pig; she's always carrying him about and
yesterday he made her all wet, I wished her joy of it. It made her
pretty sick, and I hope it will cure her infatuation.
