Meeting Vita: December 14, 2015

Sissinghurst Roses
I am too muzzy headed to make out anything. This is partly the result of dining to meet the lovely, gifted, aristocratic Sackville West last night at Clive’s.  Not much to my severer taste – florid, moustached, parakeet coloured, with all the supple ease of the aristocratic, but not the wit of the artist. . . . But could I ever know her?
