to deal with men better than anyone I know.
Lunched with Mother at Bristol. Graf Moltke lunched with us. Packed my trunk in the afternoon.
Was to leave for Berlin by the 6:0 p.m. And now I must write something about my feelings about leaving Hannover.
I don’t think I have ever been so happy as at Lahmayers and have never had such a number of real good friends before. The Lahmayers are dears—I prefer Lillie by a very long way to Hermina—the latter has a nasty habit of repeating everything that you tell her, to others. I am leaving my one and only dog behind—a charming little dog—“Puff” is. I do not regret leaving the P. de. D. or any other restaurant—but I shall miss the river, the tennis, and above all my friends—but one thing makes up for all, and a great deal more and that is that for the first time since I have met her, I shall see a lot of C. and when I think of this, all my other troubles are forgotten.
Molony, William O'Sullivan, Diary, 25 July 1914
