Virginia Woolf in London - 5 February, 1921

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.2, 1920-1924, pages 89-90:

We had the Memoir Club on Wednesday.  Clive & Maynard read; both elaborate & polished, Clive mellow & reminiscent about Mrs Raven Hill...Maynard, of course, was the solid piece of the evening, so long indeed that we had to leave before the end.  I was a little bored by the politics, & a good deal impressed by the method of character drawing...Then Melchior; & his room, where the three clerks refused to leave off playing the piano.  'Smoking isn't allowed until 5' they said; 'This is the German revolution' was Melchior's comment.
