Yesterday, Tuesday, we both renewed London life in the usual way, save that I had to buy stuff for dresses, as well as paper labels & glue.  Tea at the Club, where Alix, dusky and dreary, borrowed 10/- in order to give James his dinner. They were going to hear Bertie lecture; I preferred the songsters of Trafalgar Square.  The steps of the column were built up, pyramid fashion, with elderly respectable householders grasping sheets of music, which they rendered, in time to a conductor on a chair beneath, with great precision.  It was Life boat day, & the elderly people were singing sailor's shanties & Tom Bowling.  This seemed to me a very amusing & instructive spectacle & being famished for music, I could not get past, but stood and felt thrilled with an absurd visionary excitement; & walked over Hungerford Bridge making up stories.
