'Her new works are two books of Belles Lettres, London Is My Lute, a collection of articles and essays...The second volume is, A Son for England, a charming tribute to the youth of our Empire. The Australian edition is named A Son for Empire.' (content appears in topical column, 'This, That and Them', by London correspondent T. H. Cochran)
    Note: Although the column lists the title(s), A Son for England / A Son for Empire, library catalogues indicate that the book was actually published with the title(s) A Man for England / A Man for Empire.
