Virginia Woolf in London - early February, 1923

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.2, 1920-1924, pages 232-233:

And our depression comes too from the time of year, wet & wan, and from Joad's drawling voice, & Ralph's stubbornness, & from Lytton's hint that he means to start the Tidmarsh Press at once...& I shall be glad when the 15th March arrives.  I suppose the Press must now lose something of its charm, & become more strenuous; acquiring let us hope a different charm.  But I wish Joad were, somehow, a lady.  Now to Wigmore Hall with Saxon to hear a severe Franck quintet, beyond me no doubt.
