Diaries and Trains

Some of us wondered why Roger Casement kept his Black Diary. Oscar Wilde had this to say about diaries: "I never travel without my diary.  One should always have something sensational to read in the train." The quote appears in Brian Lacey's informative chapter on Roger Casement in his book Terrible Queer Creatures (Dublin, Wordwell, 2008).
