Another Journey to Paris

18th - 27th July

At Basnæs Estate.

27th July - 7th August

At Glorup Estate. Outings from here to Lundsgård Estate and Lundeborg. Sees Mrs Heiberg, who is visiting the Langes at Ørbæklunde, and goes for a walk with her which lasts more than an hour and a half, showing her around in the park at Glorup.
Odense seems to be in no rush to celebrate HCA, as he is not in the town at all during this stay on the island Funen, in spite of Bishop Engelstoft having urged HCA to return during the summer, so that Odense could make him an honorary citizen.

7th - 21st August

At Holsteinborg. Here he reads aloud from his fairy-tales for the workers on the estate.

7th - 22nd September

In Paris. Visits the World Exhibition once again. Goes with Robert Watt to a brothel, but does not, once again, go beyond talking with:

22 September

Departure from Paris, through Épernay and Kehl to Baden-Baden, Kassel, Hamburg, Fredericia and Odense.
