Adam lists all the Russell materials in her possession and her memories of what she used to have from the period 1930-33 when she worked for him, which were lost in the war. She indicates she is enclosing a letter but it is not there. See record 121785. She notes that she did not see him between 1933 and 1950 when they met again in Australia. She does not think Education and the Social Order was written in the summer of 1932 at Carn Voel but earlier at Bernard Street. That is where he acquired and did the original sorting with her of the Amberley papers. She married in Jan. 1932 and visited BR and Peter at Emperor's Gate.

"My own impression is that he wrote The Scientific Outlook, Education and the Social Order and the Autobiography up to 1921 in that order." "I did not become his secretary until, I think, late November of 1930."

Adam did not meet Peter "until 1931 when, under Bertrand's tutelage, I became very much involved with her for a time."
