Dora believes that when BR and Wittgenstein met in the Hague, Wittgenstein was a homosexual. "I also believe that his admiration for Russell had a similar foundation. I am not among those who set store by Wittgenstein's philosophy, though he was, clearly, a fascinating and entertaining character when young. He seems to have got pompous later."

BR "told me quite definitely that his reason for breaking off with Constance Malleson, who, I am sure, he would have married, was that she wanted to go on with her career as an actress and did not want to start a family."

"The prospect of a child with Peter Spence also played a vital part in our separation."
