. I went up to lunch with the Benvenisti’s at 17, Belsize Square. Mrs B has an unbounded admiration for John Gow [the Head Master] and sees his genius and mind in everything. She remarked, laying a hand on her heart in true foreign style ‘’e is all tenderness ‘ere!’. Both she and Mr Benvenisti are very foreign (and I should say very rich!) and quite difficult to understand. We had a most excellent lunch, E.S. Wood was also there. The house is prettily furnished and somewhat sumptuously, we each had a Chippendale Armchair to sit in for luncheon. They were both very hospitable and hoped we should come again.
