Notes, topics or text 

Beatrice Webb regrets that she was not at home yesterday, else she would have come to the ceremony for Frank. She writes of his "rather strange relationship to Herbert Morrison, seeing their relative rank and their difference of upbringing."

She points out that if BR refuses to be an earl, how can he continue to be an Honourable? She approves of the refusal, but BR will find it difficult to separate official from private occasions.

A note at the top by the secretary states that on "27/3/31 phoned Mrs. Webb that ceremony is on Monday—she going to London."
