Notes, topics or text 

"Rowse has always been ridiculous about Bertrand Russell. He accused him of being pro German in the First War. I heard him saying the same sort of thing after the Second War at a meeting of P.E.N. Club, when Dame Rebecca West was in the chair. I got up and attacked him then."

Re Edna Lenoir: "As to what she says about atheist books and Montreal—I am astounded. I say with—who was it?—when they banned a nude statue 'O God, O Montreal!' It is a famous saying to which Bertrand often referred."
