Notes, topics or text 

"So far as 'fitting in' is concerned, B. Russell would do it all right, at least at the mathematical end.... I have known him and liked him since 1908." "In his favor are his preeminence in mathematical logic and as a master of the English language. The chief point against him is the fact that he is already well past our retiring age in years. If someone came forward with what would amount to a pension for the rest of his days, I can see no reason for not giving him asylum, as it were, in the Institute [for Advanced Study]".
