Notes, topics or text 

The letter is about BR and Dora Russell's divorce. Both H.G. Wells and Curry are distressed by it. They are not only concerned about the Russells themselves but the harm this might do to all "the causes, ideas, and institutions" they are associated with. "This does not seem to me a time when liberal-minded people ought to give the cheap reactionary press free ammunition."

"As you say, why the hell does he want another Countess Russell? His brother left enough Countess Russells littered about the place. Still, Miss Spence wants to be Countess Russell and she wants children who will be little Russells and not little bastards. Dora really doesn't care whether she gets a divorce or not...."
