Since last I kept you my neglected,  imperfect,  haphazard diary much seems to have happened.  I have twice spoken in the House of Commons, been to America,  dined with Kings,  recovered and lost again my high spirits.

No one now enjoys the House of Commons more than I. I am truly bitten by it.  The first week I was shy but flattered,  then I had a fortnight of doubt, and of boredom, but ever since I have loved every minute of it. I like the male society. It reminds me of Oxford or perhaps of the private school to which I never went.

Chips Channon, diary, 4 May 1936.
