'They were conscious some-Q sharply, others dimly that on that; chilling
-afternoon they were mourning the unique. '
Thus James Pope-Hennessy concluded his 621st page of the great life
story of Queen Mary which took him over three years to wriie. And this
is how all who knew and loved him and his work must have fjlt on that
chilling Friday January 25th when they heard that this brilliant author
had been foully tortured and murdered by a 'knife gang' am.Ong the ruined
and ransacked belongings of his cherished house in Ladbroko Grove,London.
The full horror of such a death for such a man is not some thing one can
get over. He was a devout Roman Catholic for whom, as his Writings show,
death was a moment of great dignity and resignation, the f nal curtain
of the earthly pilgrimage. It is terrible to think of the work undone
which this brutal slaying cut short, and very impressive to contemplate
the works achieved already: biographies (including a study of his grand-
father Sir John Pope-Hennessy, once a prematurely federal-;Iinded Governor
of Barbados), documentaries bearing his particular hallmanr of distinction
and astuteness and these touched on the West Indian scenp too ... not
always to the satisfaction of Caribbean dwellers. In fact, he got a
rather jaundiced view of Dominica ("The Baths of Absalom'")' a Dominica
which I had encouraged him to visit; but alas I was not there at the time
and he could not stay at (then) Kingsland House, so he lodged at the old
Paz Hotel where he was miserable because of noise and otheap discomforts.
This may account for some -peevish comments James was notla socialist,
Vut dire poverty affected him strongly, as strongly as English-type sub-
urbanism annoyed him and natural beauty delighted him. "A-'.est Indian
Summer", whichpreceded "Absalom", is a delightful book wi h glorious
illustrations, provoking in parts of course. But then I li,%e provoking
-- Ealier James had won the Hawthorndei' Prize for "London- Fabric". He
was devoted to the grey, brave, history-soaked city .which gas his home.
The quality which compels admiration for his works aside! from his in-
imitable style is the unflagging industry of his research. Nothing was
too much trouble, no archives too vast for him to tackle. 'Small wonder
that in 1955 the Royal.Family commissioned him to write Queen Maryte
life, which (like, a few of his other books) you will find .n our Public
Library. He was made, a Commander of the )[ictorian Order i4' 1960.
When I :first met him, James Pope-Hennessy was a ILakjor in the ]itish Army,
attached td.the. War Office. In his house, after he came back from'Washington '
following Presid fit Roosevelt's death, one would meet writers much older and
(then) more renowned than the-young host: people like Rose Ilacaulay and Harold
Nicholson. It was "a haven for the brushing of intellects- and the enjoyment of
beautiful objects. BVt this modest, delicate and witty man liked the company of
simple and even rough characters too. And through these' last he met his end.'
Onee James and I searched Westminster Abbey for a memorial to Thomas Chatterton,
sad suicidal poet.. I wrote these lines then for him:
Who will write the' biography of this ingn an imperial Abbey
a poet and a croyant
marvellous and mysteriious man? Probably moved between sainted plaques
only his mother, Dame Una Pope-Hennessy seeking the tomb of a young poet
(Dickenst biographer) could have done who had died In failure and anguish

Dear Madam, -
The people b6T Vioille Case and around
. the Vieille Case area confess that they
are puzzled w iththe mystery of .O.0.
Leblanc"s (Promier of Dominioa) old house
at Vieille Case.
When 1rr. Leblianc first had that old
house there Was'no Labour Party in
Dominica at 'that time, so things were not
bright with himi- What made the people.
puzzaed is, after a time they hear- -thalt
Mr-. Leblanc sold that house to his'6rcd1ft
-H6o1 much the brother paid for that house '
only heaven knows.
After a time they heard that. the bro-
ther sold that house to Leblanc's govern-
ment for $12,000 and that same I&eblanc
government paid "I10,000 to repair the
house soon after it was bought.
Is it too much to wonder what (at the'
time the mystery of that transaction was
on) the house might really have 'been
Now Madam Editor, it. appears to me
that the rev6fiue"of this country is oily
for Mr.Leblanc -and his family. Fok" an
account of that deal and many others'iie
have seen that the water that God gave-
us.fre, i '.Domhinica ,' under M.iLejlancs
administration, th6"rates have -gone up-
high, Alao f6od, meat, clothing, oil
etc., etc., goes up like wildfire.
Again, is it too much to say that this
rising, costof fliVing- is to cover the.
cost of those mysterious transactions?
I also heard'that Armour discovered a
wonderful mystoy "as far -s bill "for
