NOTE

Either Harold is entirely lacking in heart or else I’m a complete sentimentalist. I’m in love with Venice, in spite of the theatrics – and he almost persuaded me to miss it. I’ve sat in the Piazza eating casata and watched the clock parade. I’ve done the cathedral thoroughly, and climbed the Campanile by lift. It would be worth the walk, if necessary. Mrs. C. has gone to Chioggia for the day, but I’m comfortably installed at the Savoia.
