Notes, topics or text 

"Yes, that was a stupid review of Bertie's book in the Lit. Supp. [TLS], obviously by a Catholic. He had a fierce controversy with the Australian Catholics over birth control, but in the end the Bishop of Sydney has to make him a public apology for stating that he had been refused an American visa—it was refused to Frank Russell for having been a bigamist and in prison. I hope Bertie sent you his book."

Alys quotes from her letter of 2 years ago from Bernard Shaw. She was interviewed by the press for her Fernhurst reminiscences of Shaw.

"Bertie is now lecturing at Mt. Holyoke, and then seeing his daughter in Washington. She is married to a young Harvard Cambridge don, who has a govt. job at the moment. Her young half-brother (born when Bertie was 64) is a very brilliant boy with a scholarship. But I believe he [Conrad] is hysterical, like his hysterical mother, who left Bertie 1 1/2 years ago."
