She gave a detailed account of the first day of the Federation Conference (19 Sep). The speakers at the afternoon meeting were: Mr Wuarin. a jurist and a Professor at the Geneva University; Mr Pierson of Holland, President of the Federation; Mr Weber the representative of German State worshipping ideas; Mlle Saint-Croix of Paris. Then at 4.30. they were all marched to the Quay and boarded a 'vaisseau de luxe' for a short round on the Lake ending up at the foot of the lawn of the Fatio's houses situated at a picturesque point in view of Mont Blanc where a garden party was held for the delegates. She had one or two interesting conversations, but confessed that she did not like garden parties. One cheering piece of news 'just as we were getting on board the ship we got the telegram of Dreyfus being set at liberty'.
