Notes, topics or text 

"I am sending you a copy of Bertie's lecture on 'Philosophy and Politics', with Desmond's review of it. It expresses exactly what I feel about Bertie's great book, The History of Western Philosophy, that it lacks the strain of impartiality of a true philosopher, and is wanting in both profoundity and generosity.

Bertie's writing is so very good in most ways that we are disappointed that it is not just a little better."

Alys refers to her upcoming talk on Whitman on Oct. 3, which will pay her 15 guineas.
