Re BR's birthday at Alys's home in Chelsea, "a great success". "He talked brilliantly for 4 hours, and my young people were enthralled.

And they showed up well in argument with him, as they are all clever. So was his son John, a civil servant aged 29, and a very sweet and engaging personality, the exact image of his grandfather, Lord Amberley [Amberley]. The Vachel Lindsay wife was a disappointment, defiant and uncouth, middle west tho' rather pretty and distinctly clever."

"Bertie is flying to Australia soon for 8 weeks of lecturing. He is broadcasting tonight on 'Punishment', but will not recall his own days in prison."
