Hears Mrs, Barrat Speak Tour Members of Chapter S of the P.E.O. held a luncheon meeting at the McFarland House in Martinsburg on Saturday, August 12, and heard a program on a tour of England and Wales by Mrs. Robert H. Barrat, a member of the chapter. The speaker first displayed a map of the British Isles, on which she had traced the itinerary of her three-week tour this summer, beginning and ending in the heart of London. Using colored slides, Mrs. :Berrat talked about the usual I tourist attractions as well as !some highlights off, the beaten path. While staying in Yorkshire, she visRed Bossall Hall, near York, a former residence of the Belt family, from which Mrs. Barrat is descended. The main house was built in 1840. Another unusual highlight was the quaint fishing village of Clovelly, with its cobble-stoned streets, un- changed since it was settled in the 12th Century. The speaker also told of the thrill of standing along the shore at Old Plymouth, from which the Mayflower  in 1619. Many of the slides reflecting the beauty of England were these of the Kew Gardens in London, Hampton Court and its formal gardens, and the Lake Country of northern England, where the homes of Chippendale " Wordsworth are situated. i Points of historical interest irluded St. Martin's Church in Canterbury, the oldest parish church in England, built before the Romans came to Christianize Britain; the ruins of Glastonbury, the legendary burial place of King Arthur; St. C, eorge's Chapel at Windsor Castle, site of the establishment of the Order of the Garter, marking the beginning of knighthood; and finally the Roman baths in the city of Bath. Mrs. Barrat was accompanied on her trip by Mrs. Frank Likar who told the group of her ex- i perience in locating and then visiting James Herriot, author of the best.selling "All Things Wise and Wonderful." She said that no pern in the town of Thirsk would tell her where the author lived, since he prefers to remain a private person This necessitated some detective work on her part before she was able to find his address and take a taxi to his house. She found him in the yard of his home, ting a lamb. She reported that he was extremely pleasant and courteous and graciously autographed her copy of his book. During the business meeting, held in the ballroom of the McFerland House, Chapter S voted to donate $15 to the Old Opera House, in appreciation for the use of their equipment to print the organization's year- book. The president, Mrs. Charles Postlethwaite, ex- pressed thanks to Mrs. Falconer Smith and her husband for preparing and printing the yearbooks.
