Rupert Gunnis, ADC to Governor Ronald Storrs, visited the Dianellos and Vergopoulos cigarette factory in Nicosia:
Down to collect M. and C.M. and then with Lady Storrs to the Evkaf Dept for distribution of clothes to the poor children (I had given £7 towards this). Each child got a pair of shoes and a pair of socks. They looked terribly poor and all in rags. Then took M. and C.M. to see the carpenter's shop and the D and V cigarette factory. They were very much excited as they had just found a testimonial of mine dated 1923. Tea with the Shellishes; it has appeared in the press that Maudie is the King's sister in law, on seeing it Mrs S. said to her husband "There! I knew Mr Gunnis was a prince in disguise" I noticed they always speak of "Your King", never "Our King"
