Benjamin Britten in Holt - 1 March, 1930

from Diary of Benjamin Britten, March 1 1930, page 35:

And Now It is all over! I am sitting up in bed alone. All (or most of) the others have gone to a Debate, but I haven't because I'm so tired. Mummy, Pop, & Beth & the car arrived at 2.15, & they are staying the night at the Feathers. I go out for a drive with Beth & Mummy, to Cromer & then come home for tea at the F. Then we go to the Recital. It goes very badly! My thing is not [Britten crosses out the word 'not'] quite well appreciated but not understood Dr Hendrie is ill & doesn't sing my song! I go back to dinner at Feathers & return in time for prayers 8.30
