Notes, topics or text 

White writes of a letter to her from BR that she sold because she needed the money. It contained the sentence: "I could renounce the world and the flesh, but never the devil." Of their relationship she writes: "Though I admired him tremendously, was enchanted with his wit and much flattered by his friendship, I didn't want a physical relationship with him."

Of the letters still in her possession she offers to send them to Blackwell for photocopying and return. This did not happen. She plans on giving them to her daughter upon her death.

BR quarrelled with her "at the time of his divorce from Dora, because he wanted me to supply some evidence about her which I had only acquired by accident, and didn't think I had a right to disclose to his solicitors. He desperately wanted to get the custody of his children, but I think he did get it after all."

With regard to the blurb by BR for her Frost in May, she thinks it came from a review. It did not come from a letter.
