“Lucy was looking sweetly pretty... I noticed that the old men did not lose any time in coming up and sitting near her when we sat down. She is so sweet with old people; I think they all fell in love with her on the spot...

“Lucy and I sat awhile, and it was all so beautiful before us that we took hands as we sat; and she told me all over again about Arthur and their coming marriage.”

Today’s journal entry shows us Mina’s view of Lucy: pretty, charming even to old people, as well as to eligible bachelors. The image of Mina and Lucy, holding hands on the stone bench in the churchyard as the sun sets, is a lovely portrait of two dear friends.

Quite so! I often wonder what might have happened if Mina had stayed with Lucy instead of travelling to Bucharest. Perhaps the outcome would have been the same.
