Evidence

"We were coasting down Corsica — I saw it out of my bathroom window — in perfect weather, mild and calm and sunny. We passed through the Straits of Bonifac[c]io about 11 and were soon out of land. I sat on deck all day without any rugs or wraps and read Stevenson"s charming letters, walked about with the Austrian a little and talked to the Australians."
