We live in anxiety

HRH Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, confided her thoughts on the political situation in her late husband’s nephew Ralph Glyn:

Kensington Palace

My dear Ralph

It was very nice of you remembering my birthday, & sending me a nice letter…

The anxiety we live in for what is going on is great as you can fancy, home politics terrible. Excepting the WO, it is, I hear from soldiers, improving under & working with KK [Lord Kitchener] are two of our very best men, & things seem to be on a more settled ground from all accounts. This is a great thing.

The Australian Prime Minister is a splendid man, very fearless & very strong & not quite liked by some on account of that but he is a very highly strung man & feels [accused?], therefore he broke down after making so many splendid speeches – sorry enough end…

Yours affectionately


Letter from Princess Louise to Ralph Glyn (D/EGL/C15/4)
