Virginia Woolf - late September, 1927

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.3, 1925-30, page 158:

Quentin won't let us play him Wagner: prefers Bach.  Nessa's children are terrifyingly sophisticated: so Morgan said when Angelica, rigged up in a long black shawl, acted Lady Cornflax & Lady Ottoline at Charleston. They have grown up without any opposition: nothing to twist or stunt.  Hence they have reached stages at 16 or 17 which I reached only at 26 or 27.
