Eleanor Elder et al. in Edinburgh - November, 1922

from Travelling Players: The Story of the Arts League of Service, page 89:

And he [John Nevill] mentions a day with no show, spent in Edinburgh, on our way to Hawick, where we had tea with Mrs. Margery Kennedy-Fraser.

She was charming; so like Ellen Terry, in voice, manner, and appearance.  She sang several Hebridean songs for us, including “A Crone’s Lilt”, which she did extraordinarily well.
