RELATED CONTENTS
 
The Victoria and Albert Museum
has just acquired a very fine Chinese painting
of quite unusual size and decorative quality
representing birds of paradise
and storks in a grove of bamboo, 
roses, and other plants.
This has the signature, Tei-ki,
and is dated 10th month 1st year of the Che Shun 
(Horse Year- A.D. 1330).
It was presented to the museum by a donor
who wishes to remain anonymous.
It has also gained possession of a good Japanese painting
of a pheasant,
early nineteenth century;
one of a willow wren on a pine branch
by the living artist, Watanabe Seitei,
and two original drawings by
Kyosai have also been placed.

Miss Edith Kirkwood (Mrs. Barry Neame)
is to give a morning concert
at 35 Grosvenor Square, W.,
by kind permission of the Duke and Duchess of Somerset,
on Tuesday, July 4 at 3.15 pm,
assisted by Miss Edith Clegg, 
Mr. Alfred Heather, Mr. Ivor Foster, Mr. Paul Reimers,
Mr. Robert Bradford, Miss May Mukle,
Lady Tree, and M. Maurice Farkon.
 
—————————————–
 
The Hippodrome has during this coronation season
distinguished itself by giving the public a very
excellent performance.
“Makers of Empire”,
a series of patriotic tableaux,
have proved very effective,
the accompanying words being from the pen
of Mr. Fred Trussell,
who has also just published an effective song
entitled “A Song of Empire”.
The tableaux, of course, conclude
with a very effective living representation
of King George
surrounded by representatives
of the various parts of his Empire.
