The Diary in April

The final diary, one of 30 written since 1895. Life on a Kenyan farm. Jacob Epstein and Safari ants compete for Wynne's disapproval. Her brother arrives with his new bride.

April 1st – 6th

Wynne records coffe spraying and her distaste for the works of Jacob Epstein…but approves of Howard Dresser’s book.

April 7th – 16th

Her brother Elliot arrives with his new bride. A much longed for reuniion.

April 17th – 23rd

Home news seems very distressing…the Depression was terrifying, and the King of Spain abdicates, but this week Wynne had to contend with an invasion of safari ants. Heavy rain at last.

April 24th – 30th

Voting for the Legislative Council…and discussing the Depression, much as we do in our own times (2012).
