Re Dora Russell and Beacon Hill School. "Not sent" is noted and underlined in BR's hand in the top left.

BR's hand is shaky and he is bedridden.

BR writes, "I made up my mind to close the school in June next year. I wrote to the Youatt's saying we might be doing so, so they decided not to send their children. The school does not do the things I hoped of it."

"Darling, you used to be so dear and lovely and you still are when you forget self. I think if we were not fighting the world, as we are doing at the school, all the lovely things would revive fully. When you fight, you forget who is the enemy." BR details the undesirable traits of Dora when she wields executive power. "Things will be better now, if you can avoid being furiously angry with me."
