text: I went to Grindlay & Co & arranged for sending off some cases by train. Sent 15 rupees to Mrs. Jolly at Imphal, Manipur, for some models which had been made there for me. After lunch I went with Annandale to the Asiatic Society's House, to see the pictures & the inscribed copper plates etc. of historical interest; & then went to the Club for a while. In the evening I took Annandale, Tipper & Coulson to the Empire Theatre to hear the "Yeomen of the Guard", with Workman as Jack Point. The performance was a very fair one. I packed until 2 a.m.
