And I am happy to have been able to honour her in turn at the start of this special day. Hemlow admired Burney, among other qualities, for her intelligence, her industry and her endurance. Hemlow had these qualities herself, and she also shared with Burney a great sense of humour: like Burney she was greatly amused by the foibles of humanity, and whenever she was in the Burney Room, you could be sure that laughter was not far away. Because she was the pioneer in modern Burney studies, and because in certain ways she and Burney were so alike, it is fitting that their names should be linked today, and forever after.
