'Wednesday Jan 5th ... Then we went a-shopping. I called at Lehnhold's [music publisher's where
Clairmont received all mail] and found a letter from Mary. Got into the carriage and read it [...]
We went to Levy's Magazine. I read my letter whilst the Princess [Galitzin] walked round the
shop. In came a tall man [...] He stared at the Princess and then at my letter -- its black seal
seemed to startle him.'
