Extent & medium

1 piece

Content Description

Summerises his daily routine. Discusses the fate of the Hugh Lane collection, the quality of which he derides. He remained loyal to Beecham's opera until the close of its season. He is now off to Helen's then to Arthur Evans. He thinks the Peace Party dangerous, and that L[loyd] G[eorge] is too weak to be rid of their influence. He recalls his youthful stays with Herbert Oakeley, when they would feed the deer from the window of the "pill box" house.
