In the evening everyone went to the Hamel’s house to see 8 mm (black and white) movies of Batchian, Aram, Buru, and New Guinea. The films were quite good and very interesting although David was slightly disappointed on Batchian, an island which he has long wanted to visit. Those of the New Guinea natives were the most interesting. In the middle of the performance Anne asked me to stop smoking my pipe. Hugo told me later that he thought her manner was insulting but I did not take it seriously. Anne has a naturally disagreeable and dictatorial manner.
Fenton informed me that both he and Hugo were madly in love with the Resident’s daughter.
