29 January 1897 — 3 Savile Row
Friday. 29th [January 1897]. I went out in the carriage in the morning, fetched Lady Gregory at Queen Anne’s Mansions & went with her to the S. Kensington Museum to see Mr Alan Cole & to talk about the piece of tapestry which Henry had deposited at the Museum some time ago & which was said to require cleaning. I spoke abt taking it away & selling it & Mr Cole asked me if I would sell it to the Museum & asked me to write & mention a price wh I promised to do. We returned home to lunch here. At 3 Eda & I drove out again. Called for Mrs Borwick and she took us to the York Rd Lying in Hospital which we went over—& saw the mothers & babies. In the first ward there were 3 women 2 with babies & one who had had twins who had died. Poor woman the tears ran down her cheek when we praised the other babies & she told me she had had 4 & none had lived. The Matron Miss Atkinson was very kind & gentle to all. The hospital is small & quiet & evidently well managed. We came home to tea. Nelly & Eda went to the Play together & Sophy & I had a quiet evening.
