Sir George Riddell sent a man and a car to conduct me to St. Dunstan's, Regent's Park, where Arthur Pearson has established a home for blinded soldiers. very large place; belongs to an American financier named Kahn. 15 acre garden etc.
Pearson very natty, and a constant and rapid talker. Practically quite blind. He may have vague sensations of dark and light. His wife came. He kissed her hand when she left. I liked her.
As ever when in company with these officers of established religion I wonder how they reconcile the tenets of "Peace to all men" and "Turn the other cheek" with their active support for the war effort? But it would be in bad taste to ask the question directly. What a sham organised religion is. It seems that the Bishop has been afflicted by a different sort of blindness.
