Lady Mary’s diary 27.10.18
The news is too immense for private life. Service 11 Good sermon from Mr Davies: we are to forgive the Germans where they repent and make full reparation (so there is no hurry)
November 1st 1918
These wonderful days. Almost dazed with the news that pours in upon us. Turkey’s unconditional surrender. Immense Italian victory from the Trentino to the sea.
Returned home after three days with Mrs Godden at Compton House. Most thankful to have dear little house. Know and like Mrs Godden all the better.
She regrets having missed the clever people I have been privileged to meet and know. En revanche, I love her beautiful country home. Influenza is upon us.
