And more about Stella Browne continues to drift in

Learnt from Gill Fildes while at the Women's History Network Annual Conference this weekend (report may follow, or not, as I have the Society for the Social History of Medicine Annual Conference happening from tomorrow), that according to entry in Winifred Holtby's diary, she was visiting her near neighbour in Chelsea,  Cicely Hamilton, and Stella also happened to be there.

This not only confirms my sense that the contacts which existed, but for which evidence is fragmentary, between Stella and Winifred, were probably face to face rather than epistolary, but also brings in further confirmation about her relationship with Cicely Hamilton, for which there is already evidence.
