Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Gladys Young , St. Agnes Home for Children, [address removed]
For nearly forty years ' St. Agnes ' has cared for children of all ages, some from unhappy homes, some without any homes, some without parents, many abandoned by their parents, but all find a happy Christian environment-in other words a home— at 'St. Agnes,' regardless of their antecedents. There is no central or official fund out of which to meet any part of the costs, and donations are urgently needed to carry on the work.

by Benjamin Disraeli
Adapted as a serial in nine episodes by Blair
7—' Coningsby declares his independence'
Other parts played by Peter Claughton , Patricia Matthews and Hilda Schroder
Produced by Frederick Bradnum
From a chance meeting with Lady Wallinger and her husband in Cambridge, Coningsby learns that Sidonia is only an old family friend and would never marry Edith. This induces him to go to Coningsby Castle and meet the Millbank family again at nearby Hellingsley, where they are living. Oswald Millbank begs Coningsby to lead the ' New Generation ' of young Tories to achieve the political ideals they have at heart.
At Hellingsley Coningsby declares his love for Edith and is accepted. But Millbank rejects him, revealing that he had been a suitor for Coningsby's mother but that she had married his father instead, with the result that Lord Monmouth had ruined them both. He will not risk Edith being similarly treated. Oswald returns with Coningsby to Coningsby Castle to console him, and Rigby discovers Coningsby entertaining him there, a forbidden guest.
