In 1905 Asquith became Chancellor of the Exchequer and in 1908 Prime Minister. His wife's leading position in London Society is reflected in her correspondence. From an early age Margot kept a diary and wrote stories and observations about her life. When her sister Laura died in 1886 she compiled an account of her early life, illness and death. In later life she went on to write her autobiography and many other books. She also contributed articles to magazines and newspapers.

The East End of London was not a new experience to me. Laura and I had started a creche at Wapping the year I came out; and in following up the cases of deserving beggars I had come across a variety of slums. I have derived as much interest and more benefit from visiting the poor than the rich and I get on better with them. What was new to me in Whitechapel was the head of the factory.
