Arthur worked in the British Legation in Copenhagen from 1898 to 1900. He hated it because he did not have enough work to do! Alan Johnstone (who's autograph is also there) was secretary of the Copenhagen Legation. In "Arthur Ponsonby, The Politics of Life" by Raymond A. Jones, Arthur reports, "The Johnstones are the regular Anglo-American diplomatic ménage, lots of money and very diplomatic." (Alan Johnstone married the American heiress, Antoinette Pinchot, in 1892). In 1905 he became Ambassador to Denmark.
