“Then I had lunch with Jean Ross and her daughter Sarah, and three of their friends at a little restaurant in Chancery Lane. Jean looks old but still rather beautiful and she is very lively and active and mentally on the spot – and as political as ever. Sarah is a barrister and, according to Jean, hasn’t cared to marry because ‘ since she took to the law, she has seen so much of what marriage lets you in for’. Sarah is rather plump but quite nice looking. Seeing Jean made me happy; I think if I lived here I’d see a lot of her” Christopher Isherwood, April 24th 1970
