This message from Constance Malleson is contained in a letter from Frank and Elizabeth Russell, document .079984, record 46923. She uses her pseudonym "Percy" and includes a message from "G.J.", who is also another of her identities.

"Percy says 'am reading the Boigne memoirs with great interest and amusement. Read Anna Karenina during last week end at Priscilla's. It seems just a little banal after War and Peace. G.J. wishes me to say that I brought Miss Wrinch back to the attic after Hilda Meynell's last concert and met Joad for the first time. One meets Nevinson everywhere, but I find I do not get any further with him so he remains just an acquaintance. It is despairing about C.A. [Clifford Allen] will he ever return to normal activities. I feel we shall not be asked to Hawse End this year!! Tomorrow Basil, Miles and I go to Nimmy not for the week end. I go with mixed feelings. (End of message from Percy)."

Frank writes: " I have just left Miles chuckling to himself over Howard's End, while C. vainly endeavours to ascertain whether there will be any butter for the week end."
