Aunt Alice takes Rose out for the day and takes her on a tram. Aunt Alice asks Rose is she is going to drive a tram. Rose said back to her, "that's why I'm going teach myself".
Aunt Alice takes Rose to a cafe that Rose's father suggested, they ate a Chinese dish with chicken, vegetables and a black sauce made from beans.
The last part of the day out with aunt Alice was going to Cole's arcade. One of the places mother would forbid her to go to. Rose enjoyed it there, she found the monkey very interesting and saw many books that she wanted to read.
