Text, letter

Took Bell to London for a few days change, as she has not had one since we brought Rosa back from London.

We left Banbury by 1.14 pm train. Drove to the Clergy Club (“National church Club” as it is now called) in New Bond Street, the Secretary of which I had requested to order a room for us. It had been taken accordingly at Edwards’s Royal Hotel, Hanover Square. After tea we went to hear the Moore and Burgess Minstrels at St. James’s Hall. The singing was remarkably good and the fun afterwards was very funny.
