1 July 1911 — 3 Savile Row
Saturday. 1st July [1911]. We drove down to Petersham in the afternoon by 4 oclock in order to see a little fête in Mr Biddulph’s grounds where Lady Laura Redding (Sophy’s sister) presented to the Boy Scouts a silk banner (the Union Jack) making a suitable little speech. On Sunday we walked to Ham House with Sophy & saw over the interesting & charming old house. There were a great many people calling at the same time. Lord Dysart received us aided by his sister Mrs Stone. He is a curious looking man—almost blind, I believe & wears dark blue spectacles. Tea was served on the terrace at the front door. The pictures & furniture of the house are fine & very interesting. We met Mr & Mrs Godfrey Clark, he the son of G. Clark who for so many years had managed the Dowlais Iron Works for my brother Ivor & had consequently become very rich.
