Halide Edib’s other [son] is now at the school of economics in London, where his mother has been living since 1924, an exile among the same British whose soldiers hunted her in 1920 as she escaped from Constantinople hidden under charcoal bags on an oxcart guided by Anatolian irregulars. A few days before she left for New York a visitor saw her in her flat in Hampstead section of London. Instead of the traditional texts from the Koran- embroiderings in gold thread on green velvet […] there were such soundly Victorian pictures on her walls as adorn thousands of other London flats. Instead of the Turkish coffee and sweets which form part of the refreshment usually offered to visitors in Turkey, there were tea and toasted scones. (Price, Claire. ‘A Woman Speaks for the New Turkey’, New York Times, 29 July 1928).
