1906.You will never know, my dear and latest friend, the pleasure your visit has given us. It was such a new experience, and all the more to be appreciated, because we were firmly convinced we had come to the end of new experiences.For almost a quarter of a century, in our dear Turkey, we longed above all for something new - we would have welcomed death even as a change, but everything, everything was always the same.And now, in the space of eight short months, what have we not seen and done ! Every day has brought some new impressions, new faces, new joys, new difficulties, new disappointments, new surprises and new friends - it seemed to both of us that we must have drunk the cup of novelty to its very dregs.
