Reading Experience:

'C. [David Lloyd George] is in very good spirits after a week-end rest. Yesterday I went down to W.H. [Walton Heath] & spent the afternoon with him, & we had a jolly time. We have both been reading Wells' last book The Wife of Sir Isaac Harman and C. thinks it is his most brilliant work. Wells has modified his views considerably, though, since he wrote Anne Veronica!'
