Audrey Tennyson's Vice-Regal Days edited by Alexandra Hasluck, from the extensive collection of Tennyson papers in the National Library of Australia. The book is fortunate in its editor, for Lady Hasluck, besides being a skilled historian, brought to the task the experience and insights of one who was herself the wife of a former Governor-General of Australia.The cold was intense aamp; I felt sorry for all the sundowners aamp; woodcutters we passed cutting trees aamp; making roads, with ... stalagmites aamp; all sorts of fantastic shapes, one exactly like a huge elephanta#39;s head with great flapping ears, little eyes, ... Then what they call the blankets aamp; curtains are most marvellous with wonderful patterns from the iron, aamp; you see the fluff aamp; threads of a blanket with the light behind.
