7 June 1911 — 3 Savile Row
Wednesday. 7th [June 1911]. Wrote many letters. C. Wyld came in just before & we drove together to Gorrers in Bond St to see the wonderful collection of Oriental china belonging to Mr Butler now to be sold. Lord Kitchener had bid me go & see it as the finest collection of Oriental china of this time. It is worth ¼ million pounds– It is certainly very curious and interesting especially the black ground. After seeing it I left Charlie at the Guard’s club & drove on to Ennismere Gardens where I lunched with Mrs Langenbach & meet Mme Erlanger daughter of Sir R. Blennerhassett a nice looking quiet lady in mourning. On leaving Mrs Langenbach I went to Fortnum Mason & fetched Charlie again & drove with him to the Army & Navy Stores & back. The Bessboroughs dined with me & afterwards Blanche & I went to the Opera (Covent Garden) invited by Mr & Mrs McDonald whom I had met in Egypt (US) to their box. We saw Samson et Dalila—a very full house– Kirkby-Lunn sang very well—very charming music—good orchestra. The theatre is very fine– I had not been in it for many years & was much struck with it.
