Regarding BR and Elizabeth Russell: "Her marriage with his brother Francis naturally brought them together rather often but—being extremely discreet, as well as loyal—she would hardly write to him about her difficulties and sorrows when it almost immediately went to pieces. Moreover they moved in very different circles and she stood in awe of his intellectual superiority." "I do indeed remember Bertie Russell well. I stood in even greater awe of him and was almost frozen speechless when lunching with him in his rooms in Cambridge alone on a memorable occasion. We never corresponded, indeed we were light-years apart."
