Margot Asquith : Diary

Henry James to Margot Asquith, 9 April 1915, thanking her for sending him her diary to read ('a few days ago'): 'I have absorbed every word of every page with the liveliest appreciation [...] I have read the thing intimately, and I take off my hat to you as the Balzac of diarists.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Henry James      Manuscript: Codex


Margot Asquith : Diaries

Margot Asquith in footnote to letter to her from Henry James of 9 April 1915, in praise of her diary, in Margot Asquith: An Autobiography (1922), 70-73: 'Out of all my diaries I have hardly been able to quote fifty pages, for on re-reading them I find they are not only full of Cabinet secrets but jerky, disjointed and dangerously frank.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Margot Asquith      Manuscript: Codex
