Notes, topics or text 

Foulkes attended BR's seminar in Sydney, Australia. BR "was not unwilling to have his own views examined, since that is what he put forward for discussion."

"The Melbourne fiasco is due to something quite different: Russell had no time for Wittgensteinians, of which the Melbourne school was full." He goes on to write at length about Wisdom of the West. "The plan of the book, the text including the preface, the diagrams and the general policy of illustration are all my work." "As for the circumstances of the enterprises, they totally discredit Fisher and Foges, with MacDonald of London and Doubleday of New York close behind."

BR agreed to this undertaking because he had three young grand-daughters to support. "What sort of publishing worthies he had fallen amongst can only gradually have dawned on him."

He asks Blackwell to keep everything he has revealed "confidential for the present".
