Charles Maclean was the love of Wynne’s adolescence. He is mentioned almost from the first page of the diary.
This is a page from the 1895 diary. It contains a paragraph about Charles written in Wynne’s own code. This was an effort to preserve some privacy in a family noted for its intrusion – it was very difficult for a young Victorian to have a private life.
The code is not that complicated – can you solve it?
