COMMENTS ON MICHAEL

"At 2.30 Michael phoned up from Childe Okeford (where Rosemary's two aunts live - a few miles from here) and said could he, Rosemary, and the five children come and see me?

What a charming crowd they are and Michael is so much an image of Barton, physically and mentally, that I kept calling him Barton. We had a marvellous two hours and when my Steinway grand was seen Amanda and the eldest boy (forgotten his name) fought for the piano stool to be able to play first. They are both first-class pianists. With the exception of three of them they will he staying till August so I am looking forward to their next appearance." - Joseph Guy Enock's letter to Bertha Wright - 30th January 1981/5th February 1981
