From page 39 of ' When Two or Three'
By a Doctor
Here is the second of three talks on that small sentient person, as curious as a calf but with far more uncertain legs, who just now is making wonderful voyages of discovery about your home. He may laugh and cry and dream of play and pudding, but he does far more than Meredith said. There is nothing he won't touch, there are few things he won't put in his mouth ; his tumbles will be many and he will cry as spontaneously from fright as for the moon. This morning a doctor is to give you some more hints about him-and about her, as the case may be.

Libelling the Dead
If a dead man is libelled have his family a remedy at law? Outside the legal profession, few people know exactly what the position is. The answer will be given, in the usual form of a discussion between a lawyer and his client, in the fourth of this series of talks tonight.
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
A brilliant student of the Royal Academy of Music, where his principal instrument was the viola, Eric Coates soon found himself in the front rank of players, and was for some years principal viola of the Queen's Hall Orchestra. He was a distinguished chamber music player, too. While still a member of the Queen's Hall Orchestra he had a good deal of his own orchestral music produced at its Promenade and other concerts. Since 1919 he has practically given
Up playing, and has devoted himself to composition. Much of his music is in lighthearted vein, graceful and melodious, and all marked by thoroughly sound workmanship.
There are no separate movements to this suite of Old English Dances, which is played without a break. The tunes used include Chelsea Reach, Round 0, Crosbey Square, The Princess, Sellenger's Round, and Pop goes the weasel.

The Right Hon. Lord LLOYD OF DOLOBRAN, G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E., D.S.O.
Tonight's speaker has had a varied and distinguished career, and was a student of Eastern politics from his Cambridge days. Lord Lloyd of Dolobran has travelled extensively in India and other Asiatic countries. He was a Unionist M.P. from 1910 to 1918, and from 1924 to 1925. He was High Commissioner for Egypt and the Sudan from 1925 to 1929, and is the author of ' Egypt Since Cromer ', the second volume of which was published last year. He is a former Chairman of the Royal Central Asiatic Society, but of course what makes his talk of such special interest tonight is the fact that he was Governor of Bombay from 1918 to 1923
