Berlin, in a letter to Christopher Cox, 14 May 1945, records a visit from Sub-Lieutenant [John Conrad] Russell. "A few minutes later a dwarf walked in, smiled, and sat down on a chair, wordless. Upon further pressure he yielded up a note which said: 'This is to introduce my son, known to the law as Lord Amberley. Although he is my son, I think he is quite pleasant. Russell.'"
On p. 575 the recollected wording is slightly different: "I had a letter from him [BR] introducing him [JCR] thus, 'He is known to the law as Lord Amberley and, although he is my son, is, I believe, quite nice'."
