de Horne Vaizey, George, Mrs.: More About Peggy. V1. 16 Dec 2009

Jessie Bell 1857-1917 (Mrs. Henry Mansergh, Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey) Used pseudonyms, mostly “Mrs George de Horne Vaizey”.

Excerpt
It was mid-January, and at home in England the ground was white with snow, but the sun shone down with brazen glare on the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal, along which a P and O steamer was gliding on its homeward way. An awning was hoisted over the deck, but not a breath of wind fluttered its borders, and the passengers lay back in their deck-chairs too limp and idle to do more than flick over the pages of the books which they were pretending to read. It was only twenty-four hours since they had left Calcutta, and they were still in that early stage of journeying when they looked askance at their fellows, decided that never, no, never had Fate placed them in the midst of such uninteresting companions, and determined to keep severely to themselves during the rest of the voyage.
