    I met Mrs Hobhouse when she was living in a house in Broxbourne. I had a 2 year old daughter who loved Mrs H and we became great friends. She was a remarkable woman who had struck terror into many a wicked heart when she was a Magistrate. She had many stories about the lives she and stephen had had amongst the poor in Hoxton. She was very angry about the treatment Stephen had when he was in prison as a consciensous objector, it made him very ill and he didn’t ever recover properly. She told me many tales about her life as an Art Student. I was very fond of her and missed her when she died.

    Having read Rosa Waugh Hobhouse’s autobiography, I’ve been looking for a copy of her book ‘Peggy in Perspectiveland’ for years! There was only one edition (it was published, I think, by WT Stead just before he went down in the Titanic ). Does anyone have a copy? If so, would it be possible for me to see and/or photocopy it??????
