from Diary of John Cranstoun Nevill 21 February 1922, page 83:

To-night we actually dined, and afterwards Winnie, Totie, Muriel, and their hostess came in.  She played Sinding and Schumann, Hebs [Hugh Mackay] sang some Gaelic songs, and I read aloud a moving poem by Felicia Hemans called A Father Reading the Bible.
