"I have given your autobiography away (and would like another copy) to of all people—Bertie! He came to lunch today, and said he wanted to read it, so I gave him my copy, and he will probably write to you about it. He looks older, though not as old as Trevy and his other contemporaries, and is very fine looking, and unspeakably clever and amusing. For 39 years, I could not bear to meet me [sic], as the thought of [sic] threw me into an abyss of utter misery, but now 'all passions are spent', and when he separated from his wife, I wrote to congratulate him on his O.M. He answered, suggesting an interview, and we had a long friendly talk about everything except his wives. He had just been to France for 3 days of lectures and receptions, sent by the Foreign Office to lecture on British politics in French! Think of it—Bertie, the outlawed jailbird!"
