Stickland encloses some extracts (not present) of his wife's notes.

During World War II, Irina left the Slade School of Art and later joined the Land Army which sent her to Cambridge. There she met and married B.D. Wragge Morley in 1943. In 1944 Irina had twins and shortly after Wragge Morley and Peter Russell went off together. Irina and the twins stayed with BR until she left for his home at Porthcurno, Cornwall. She later met Stickland and married him.

"B.D.W.M. was thick with B.R., and was concerned with him in forming some new society for the salvation of mankind." (Possibly this was the same "league" that Koestler considered forming with BR and Orwell.)

Harley's reply of 18 Aug. 1974 is present in the file. The notes Stickland sent him are not, at his express request.
