Excerpt from 5 April:

Tromso has earned the epithet ‘Paris of the North’. This is due to the number of high class emporiums that have been opened here by well known French couturiers, who supply the latest fashions to the wives and daughters of the locale, their families having grown hugely wealthy on the profits of whaling.

The Nordic princesses looking so beautiful in their delightful frocks are somewhat reminiscent of dear Miss Caldwell, whom I had last seen taking tea at Fortnum’s on that spring afternoon. I allowed myself a pleasant sigh. It all seemed so long ago... ahh what might have been.

Must press on. C.F.

Writing about ladies has prompted the notion that I may well give Miss Caldwell a call and see if she would care for tea at The Café De Paris followed by a light supper at my club What? C.F.
