Dora writes, "In any case, it is a bit funny for me to have complaints of this kind raised, when you are both on holiday, and I am scrubbing floors, living entirely alone, cooking my own meals, and seeing to letters, laundry etc. A situation I should not be in at all but for your needs. Funnier still, when one remembers that you and Peter both profess to have the friendliest possible feeling for me."

Dora tells BR, "You complain that you were unhappy with me, but you always led me to suppose that the liberty you had and the way we lived was what you wanted and believed in, and that our relation should always come first. Three weeks before you went away with Peter, you wrote to me that you looked on her only as an economic and emotional responsibility. Do you think I was happy when you deceived me about Alice, or that I could easily bear your having affairs with women who looked after my children.... I was desperately unhappy but never in a way that you could not have put right at any time by love and understanding and re-assurance of our permanent relation to each other."

Dora complains of a lack of courtesy from BR and Patricia. "You have every advantage." "You have become my enemy, whom I looked upon as forever my dearest friend."
