    . "Violet" by Barbara Belford (1990 Simon & Schuster) is one of two biographies of Violet Hunt that appeared simultaneously (the other is "An Immodest Violet" By Joan Hardwick). On p125 it says that "John Walton took as a mistress a Miss Eames an orphaned friend of his wife's who was a house guest. One New Years Eve Sylvia found her husband in Miss Eame's bed. Utterly calm at being interrupted Walton ordered Sylvia to leave, saying he would return in a minute. After dressing he entered their bedchamber and admonished her for making a fuss, the girl was an orphan and her guest, he whined, and he was only helping her see in the New Year!"
