Notes, topics or text 

The envelope is addressed to David Harley although the letter is to K. Blackwell with a note "for your information" to Harley, for it is his article on the school in Russell, nos. 35-6 (1979-80) that she criticizes. Dora dispels various myths that have grown up around Beacon Hill School: Kate and Jackie running away, the bonfire, pins in jam, the painting of the tiger, and the naked child and the vicar. She feels Wood's book The Passionate Sceptic was sycophantic and attributed "everything that went wrong to me."
