"Nu moet ik je toch even komen vertellen, hoeveel ik heb aan alles wat je me geleerd hebt. Gelukkig (of helaas) heb ik nog geen armen en beenen hoeven spalken of slagaders af te knijpen, zèlfs geen slangenbeeten meegemaakt! en ook nog niet eens verbandjes hoeven leggen, geloof ik - al blijf ik de onchristelijke hoop koesteren, dat dat alles zich nog eens op mijn levenspad zal vertoonen. Maar 't is vooral de kijk op ziektes die je ons gaf die me zoo erg goed te stade komt. (...) Mijn maatschappelijk werk vind ik eenvoudig heerlijk. Ik begin natuurlijk nog pas met mijn leerperiode in dezen (...), maar toch lijkt 't me, dat ik er dit al met zekerheid van kan zeggen. Het lijkt me prachtig werk (...)." [01/06/1930]. "Er zal nu wel geen kip, ik bedoel geen V.V.S.L.-lid in Leiden meer te bekennen zijn, en daarom kom ik je eens opzoeken "in de geest". Ben je veel kootjes aan 't afzetten, en zag je onze Clara opdraven als Vrouwe Edwarda? (...)" [12/07/1930]. "Ik heb een nieuw tragisch element in de wereld ontdekt, en dat is, dat de mensch zoo licht het slachtoffer wordt van de Tijd, die van je wegvlucht zonder dat je 't merkt, en je achterlaat beladen met schaamte. (...)" [31/05/1933]. "Hoe had je 't in Parijs? Wat heerlijk daarheen eens even te kunnen ontsnappen, vind je niet dat het een stad is waar je je geestes-longen wijd opent om er de [?]sfeer zoo diep mogelijk van binnen te krijgen? Ik herinner me er op een hotelbalconnetje boven de straat, stomweg te hebben staan genieten. (...)" [02/06/1936]. The interesting collection also comprising some nice photographs, i.a. of performances of the VVSL in which Juliana starred. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXVI.

[27/06/1898]; "Ik kan u niet zeggen hoe over gelukkig ik ben - woorden schieten daartoe te kort.

[08/08/1921]; "Ik ben erg vol van comedieplannen. We teekenen de programma's, dan kun je ze goed duur verkoopen, want op een liefdadigheidsvoorstelling moet je de lui goed afzetten." [23/02/1923]; "Vooral verleden jaar heb ik erg veel gefilosofeerd over "feminisme" - als je er haast niets van weet, kun je er zoo heerlijk makkelijk een oordeel over hebben! Ik heb over zooveel dingen zoo'n "oordeel", 't zal wel een beetje onzinnig zijn voor een kind van vijftien jaar, maar toch is 't erg prettig om over allerlei, over toestanden en zoo, te filosofeeren, en als je goed doordenkt is het heel verheffend ook, heb ik ondervonden" [01/02/1925]; "En ik verheug me dol en dol op September, wanneer ik met een troepje andere meisjesstudentjes in Katwijk ga wonen (...) Er zijn ruim 400 meisjesstudenten, en ze hebben onder elkaar een club, en het leven schijnt zoo buitengewoon aardig te zijn." [13/05/1927].

Dan krijgen wij 's middags het bezoek van de groothertogin van Luxemburg en is het heelemaal een nogal drukke dag (...) Wanneer U 't goed vindt en niet te vermoeiend, zouden we dan grondiger les kunnen hebben, om de beide maandagen in te halen." [29/05/1930]; "Ik ga nu nog even hard studeeren, want met mijn nomadenleven van de laatste maanden is het er wel nogal bij ingeschoten! Begrijpt U dat?" [02/10/1931]; "Ik dank U voor al Uw meeleven in onze vreemde, bewogen, of soms kalme dagen [Wilhelmina's father died on 3 July 1934]. U hebt zoo met ons meegeleefd alsof U 't zelf onderging. (...) 't Was een erge schok, vreeselijk & dat middenin de fleurigheid die ik had in Londen!" [23/07/1934]; "Ik zou U zoo graag eens zien, & toch ben ik in deze toestand van verloofdheid niet erg tot les krijgen in staat. Bernhard speelt helaas niets! Maar is wel muzikaal." [17/10/1936]; "Ik was blij dat U in de kerk bij de doop [van Beatrix] kon zijn. Hoe vond U die luide jammerklachten van het wurm? Anders is ze zoo vergenoegd, & lacht zooveel, is voortdurend in beweging, & betoovert allen met haar groote donkere oogen. (...) Haar horoscoop (...) zegt dat ze nòòit zal gaan geven om wat de menschen zeggen, zeer onconventioneel zal zijn, een groot sociaal hervormster, & dat ze jong zal trouwen zonder ons permissie te vragen!"
