Encounter: Lord Primrose

I knew the young man who has since seceded to the title of Earl of Rosebery when we were both at Oxford. At one point I lent him some money at his request (probably £5) and he was very reluctant to repay that sum. I knew he was the heir to the Earl of Rosebery, so I eventually wrote to the father, explaining that I needed the money, which he promptly repaid. At the time I did not realize that his grandfather had married a Rothschild, so there was plenty of money in the family.
