Ann Walker’s Entry
Anne Lister’s Entry
Up at 6 – breakfasted & off about 9 – thro’ valley of Bionassey to Mont Vosa – thence to Temple de Belle vue, where we saw a frenchman making notes who afterwards ascended Mont Blanc as far as Grand plateau, with an avocat from Sallenche & 6 peasants – they went no further, & fortunate it was they returned as a thunder storm came on, & most probably they would otherwise have been all lost, only one of the party ever having been at the top of the Mont.
remained half hour at Belle Vue, then descended Vosa to Ouches [Houches] &
Ch arrived at Chamouni about 6 oclock – had the opposite room to one we occupied before, which is much nicer, more commodious, & has a very good view of Mont Blanc – dined & went to bed –
