Notes, topics or text 

"Thurs. night". Friday morning. Dated by BR.

OM is anxious to know if BR has talked to Alys. She saw Ethel S.: "She (Ethel) seemed to think it would be impossible for A to bring me in if she went for a separation...." OM says they should be careful until Alys is calmer. Why cannot people let us love one another." Alys is a "disturbing creature—poor soul."

Later. 1 am. Ottoline talked with Mrs. Whitehead and she is nervous for OM. Danger to BR's work at Cambridge is "the greatest", but says surely Alys would not want to ruin it. "Mrs. Whitehead bothers me a little ... she sees so many complications ... but I do like her very much." 

OM thinks they are giving Alys too much power. She wishes no one knew about their love affair. "I do not bother a bit about the harm Alys could do me."

She enjoyed the play The Master Builder and asks BR what he thinks of it. OM met with Mr. R. Ross who was buying pictures at the Contemporary Art Society. She also met with Mrs. Davis. She had tea with Mr. A.M. Fish, Mr. S. Turner, and Ethel Sands.

OM asks BR if he could visit at Studland. As Desmond will be staying the night, why can't BR?
