"Madame Nicod must of course know Jean's nationality. My information (that he was Swiss) came from her stepson. As you say 'it is a minor point' whether BR and the first Mrs Eliot had sexual relations. I always took it for granted that they had; and when I wrote so to BR he never contradicted me, but said that she'd be an important part of his life for a considerable time to come. I was therefore very surprised when, in his Autobiog, he made it appear that none of his women overlapped with each other; which, as far as I know, they all did."
"Of course BR was an expert in 'making little' of his sexual relations when he wished so to do. Also at the date of his letter to Sencourt (1968) his memory was no longer very good. He once appeared in my bedroom wearing black pyjamas saying that 'Mrs E. likes them.'"
