Virginia Woolf in London - 25 February, 1919
from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.1, 1915-1919, pages 244-245:
The truth is I shirk the gigantic task of giving an account of Sunday's teaparty, at which I met Sir Val. Chirrol, Sir Henry Newbolt & Lady, Lady Cromer, the Bruce Richmonds, & a scattering of gallant bald cavalry officers, & mounds of South Kensington dowager respectability who must be nameless...The company was decorous and fur-bearing as usual; & the music like the voice of spirits in another world enticing the hopelessly damned. Sir Henry wrote a patriotic song to the tune of it. But how nice they are too!
