Virginia Woolf in Glyndebourne - 8 June, 1934
from The diary of Virginia Woolf, page 222:
...went to Rodmell; & there began the chapter again, & had a sudden fuse of ideas & then there was the opera, the nightingale singing in the ilex tree, Christabel & Mr Olaf Hambro telling stories about the Queen & Prince; & a very hot concert yesterday, so I cannot, no I cannot write today.
