NotesSecond impressions. With Vita Sackville-West's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper of the first volume, "Evelyn from Vita Xmas 1931". The recipient was the journalist Evelyn Irons. By 1931 Irons had become the editor of the Features page on the Daily Mail. In March of that year she arranged to interview Vita Sackville-West in London. Three days later she was invited to Sissinghurst and soon after the two became lovers. The relationship was quite short-lived but the friendship persisted up to Vita's death in 1962.
