LLOYD GEORGE AND MEGAN WELSH HOUSEHOLD IN DOWNING- STRiEiET. Writing of Mr. Lloyd George and h:,s little daughter in M.A.P. Mr T. P. O'Conncr says that nobody knows Mr. Lloyd George who lias not seen h's domestic as well' as his public life. ^e ^ys, a simple home, even though it finds i^elf in the splendid opulence of 11, Dowming-stree-t. A 0: young Welsh girls -att-end to the small wants of the little household; and there is aliso a. gfsod- natured, rosy cheeked young Iri-h bey, who found his wia.v from Ulster to Cr.tccieth, Lloyd George's Welsh home, and from Cru. aieth was promoted to the service of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. "Thif, youjig IiV-sh ¡boy, good-natured, wiU.hg. soft vo-oed, just gave that final b t of colour to the home of a great Celt like L'yd Gtearge which. was a certain fini-h/ag and. symmetrical touch to the whole s'anple Celtic surroundings of the man. And of that heme the br ghte.-t, the pret- tiest, most fasc nat-Ing figure is Megan. Wh0 is Megan? It "s a question whtch Megan her- se:é would find it hard to answer. To the world she is Lloyd George's youngest daugh ter-w.th far long curls of hair, with blue eyes. But this is only the obvious, Megan lives i.n a strange. :,mag:nat/ vo world of her own, in which her personality becomes almost as much of a puzzle to her- eelif as to others.. She ha.< childhood's extra- ordinary power of creating a world of dreams which 1,S as real to her as the world of reality and im that world she assumes mJllY different shapes. At one t me she is Kate—and as Kate hg io a domest c servant; and agaisi in thatcapa- city she comes, with her babv face, :in tha early morning with a cup ci tea to her father's guests :;n the little hou-e at Brighten. where LIDyd fGe(,r.-I-e pen ds week-ends. But later on in the day she, becomes th-oughtful-and then she is Dorothy Jones. Dorothy Jones is supposed t.:> be a. students at the big girl's' school near Brighton, called Roedean, where, a<a matter of fact, Megan's elder sister is at present study ing. And then th'« Protean young lady drops her other rales, and becomes Megan L'nyd Oecrge but she does not forget to talk to you about her other perToeiaUt'e-' how Kate wifl fee you again the following morn;ng early, how Dorothy Jones may come to tea, and how Megan Lloyd George wii.il certainly be at supper. "You will see her in the pctogrn.ph taken of Lloyd George the other day. when he was so cordialhr greeted by the German working- men leaders in St. James's Park. And al- ready she has added to the number of the memorable, sayings of childhood, with their stra-nge, uncanny wisdom, as though they realised the words of the poet and were_ trail- clouds of glory from Heaven, which, is their home. There is a Welsh proverb, said her father to Megan one day, which says that there are two ba.d payerv—one who never nq.ys, and one who pays too soo-n. there a th:Td. papa.' asked t-hns wnstful Kittle cbt:M, with a characteristic smile on her face, the man who pavs back? Such five year old Megan, wath already ss bg a fund of humour and •imagination &; her dis- tinguished father."
