"You have no doubt heard of Bertie's plan of standing for Parliament—I rather regret that he should turn, even temporarily, from the things of the mind and the scholar's life to the great hubbub of politics, but he is a restless soul and I suppose like Kubla Khan he 'hears from far / As astral voices prophesying war!' To have one's family change in middle years their way of life (the Berensons going into the world and the Russells into politics) is a spectacle which I watch with interest, but not the slightest desire, or hint of a desire, to follow their example."
