The National Library houses a rare typed autobiography, completed shortly before his death in Japanese-controlled China, by the eccentric British Sinologist, Sir Edmund Backhouse (1873-1944).
Backhouse claimed to have been intimate with leading cultural figures in late Victorian England and to have been the lover of the Empress Dowager Cixi (Tz'u Hsi) in China.
Welcome to our Christmas lunch to be held at the Lemon Grass, corner of Corina and Ball Streets, Woden. Wednesday 14 December, 12 noon
We held our very successful Christmas lunch there last year and have decided to return as the food was so good, the locale attractive and lots of parking nearby. We will have a Thai banquet consisting of two entrees, four main courses, steamed rice, dessert, coffee or tea for $29 per head. They can cater for vegetarians - please specify any special dietary requirements when you book. Corkage is $3 per bottle. Paid parking is across the road.
Save the date!
