Notes, topics or text 

Clark recounts to his parents his visit to Beacon Hill School, among other schools, beginning at the foot of the verso of p. 11. Although he went there without an appointment, BR "took me to his study and discussed some of his philosophy of life and the principles upon which he ran his school; I don't like to be unkindly critical of his school which is composed of 18 children, ages from 4 to 10 years." "It is his ambition to get children away from their parents at two, before they are spoiled and very seldom have them return to them until they are grown up." "I saw the school in session and never before have seen such quarrelling." "I came away more than ever convinced that Bertrand Russell's philosophy is not sound. Christian teaching makes for more beautiful lives than does Buddism [Buddhism]. Russell put Budda first...." He remarks on Beacon Hill's clothing rules.
