12 March 1897 — 3 Savile Row
Friday. 12th [March 1897]. Worked in studio. I went to luncheon with Mr & Mrs Borwick at 16 Berkeley Square. Met there Mr Leonard Borwick the great pianist but had no speech with him. He is quite a young man—very quiet—but not with the necessary amount of long hair which seems to be the right thing for a celebrated pianist of this day. Mrs Stokes was there, the wife of the eccentric Dr Stokes whom I had seen at Constantinople—during the Turco Russian war & who has set up a queer hospital in London for curing wounds by putting them under a glass case & pumping in oxygen. Nellie called for me in the carriage at 3 & we went to call on the Arthur Layards. Winifred L. was out but Arthur showed us her dressmaking efforts & also his studio with his designs for wall papers & chintzes wh did not strike us as very beautiful. We returned home by 5. Dined.
