Virginia Woolf: A Tribute

  • Lady Oxford
Part of the Macmillan Interviews and Recollections book series (IR)

They wore hats like those which are worn today, bunched up with bouquets of flowers on the crowns and tied with black velvet bows at the back. I asked someone who they were and was told: ‘They are the daughters of our host; one is called Vanessa and the other Virginia’.
