Dora recollects a discussion between J.E. Littlewood and BR in Lulworth about Jourdain in the summer of 1919. "There was an agonized discussion as to whether it would be right to tell a dying man, for his comfort, that his proof was 'right'. Both of them felt they could not, even in that extremity, depart from what they held to be mathematical truth.... Littlewood went to carry greetings and what comfort could be given from both of them."
