Now the home of the celebrated writer Goldwyn Smith, it is to be the scene of a New Year's party for four auspicious guests: Karl Pearson, the German statistician, Augusta Stowe-Gullen, a medical doctor and suffragette, Silas rand, a missionary among the Nova Scotian Micmac Indians, and Adelaide Hoodless, a domestic scientist.
