Virginia Woolf in King's College (Cambridge) - 7 February, 1923
from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.2, 1920-1924, pages 230-231:
Nessa's wedding day. Reflections suppressed. I must describe Cambridge. We walked from the station, past Rattee & Kett, cold, starry, dismal; then familiar; King's College Chapel, hasty wash & dress, & dine with Sheppard. He was in evening dress. He carries a knobbed cane. Maynard, Norton & Betty to dinner. A good deal of raw time had to be manufactured. I had romanced so much about Cambridge that to find myself sitting there was an anti climax...And so to bed; with King's bell saying very pompously all through the night the hour.
