Sylvia Townsend Warner - 23 December, 1956
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 233:
[A] group of elderly carol-singers came round - their voices were sweet and tuneable, their conductor conducted with his electric torch, its light flashing over wet spectacles and wet faces. It was pretty; and kind of them to come so far, and in Mrs Slemeck's teeth. Perhaps they are all Chapel carollers. Anyhow they were friendly in their merry Christmasses.
