Virginia Woolf in London - 12 January, 1936

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.5, 1936-41, page 7:

Ann & Cr.[Christopher] Strachey to dine last night....Ann in her red; an ungainly girl; but silent, brooding, with opinions, chiefly medical & political.  She sells the Daily Worker (3 copies) then breaks in on Cr. who is playing Bach on the piano & demands eggs & biscuits for lunch at 3.30.  Nessa, Clive, Duncan came in: but we drew the young on to chatter about B.B. [Bernard Berenson]
