Scope and content

8 Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Had a good journey, and it was nice to travel with Robert, who sat with them before his dinner. Hopes Elizabeth was no worse for Caroline's visit; felt she was very tired when she left; she must not expect to get strong at once after such a long illness. Sir George likes the idea of Elizabeth coming to Welcombe to get some real rest, and then go to the sea a few weeks later. Has been to Nicoll's this morning and 'seen the shops boarded up after the onslaught of the Suffragettes'; thinks their actions 'really terrible' and '[p]laying into the hands of the enemy'; the coal dispute is also 'very disappointing & anxious'. Sir George is 'excessively gloomy' but has not mentioned leaving London again. Was glad the motor came to the door as it gave Julian such pleasure. Good to see Mrs Grammont [Bramine Grandmont Hubrecht]; hopes she will soon be better. Did not see 'any use in talking to the Ent[ickna]ps yesterday' but if Elizabeth agrees would like to send a message saying she is sorry 'the arrangement about Gussie had to terminate' and that she hopes he will do better elsewhere; does not wish to be unfriendly to them. Annie [Philips] is coming to lunch and taking her to a concert at the Queen's Hall.
