of the Installation of Knights of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath in Westminster Abbey
THE Order of the Bath is said to have been originally instituted by Henry IV on his Coronation day, and to have lapsed at the time of the Restoration. However that may be, it was definitely established by George I in 1725, when Henry VII 's chapel in Westminster Abbey was appointed as the place of installation. Ever since then the banners of the Knights, hanging in faded splendour from the traceried roof, have been amongst the most interesting sights that the Abbey has to show. There are now twelve stalls vacant, and new Knights will be presented to them, with appropriate pomp and ceremony, today. The installation will bo described by Mr. Macor-Wright, who was responsible for such recent broadcasts as those of the Opening of Parliament and the inauguration of the new Lord Chancellor.
IN the second of this important series of talks (of which the first was given last week by Mr. J. M. Keynes ) Sir Henry Strakosch will describe the largo part that the League has played in helping to unravel the tangled web of postwar international finance, and its potentialities in the financial, as opposed to the political, sphere. He himself is a member of the Financial Committee of the League, and has represented South Africa at numerous international conferences, and he is in addition a Director of the Anglo-Austrian and the Anglo-Czeeho-Slovakian Banks, so he has an intimate knowledge of finance in Europe and outside.

It is a bright summer morning of 1859 at
Cranford. The parlour of Miss Lucinda Baines is overcrowded with fragile furniture of the period, loaded with china, or bespattered with antimacassars.
