"Milestones" by me and Knoblock produced at Royalty last night.
I had four telegrams today all agreed as to its immense success, if only the coal strike won't upset it.
The coal strike began last Friday. Said Mrs. Frankau, who with Sydney Pauling came for tea on Sunday: "Of course I'm feudal. I'd batten them down. I'd make them work. They should work I'd force them down."
Battle of Flowers yesterday. The most interesting people were the flower-vendors, 3frs. the panier, without the panier! Seat-shower quarrelling and grumbling about ticket-holders all the time, "Vous avez le No. 1. Eh bien le No. 1 est pris. Vous pouvez vous metter la. Qu'estce que ca fait?"
Larbaud brought Andre Gide in at 5.30. And we kept them to dinner and had a great evening that finished at 10 p.m. I wasn't so well today.
