Notes, topics or text 

"I don't think it would do John [Russell] any harm at all if you were to write to him about Abandon Spa. I doubt whether he is well enough at the moment to finish any of the stories that he had begun, but if he is—or as soon as he is—the work could do him no harm whatever."

"Your theory that the best work is done by the men who are uprooted is one which occurred to me when I studied the pre-Socratics, most of whom were refugees. The fact is that one can make up any number of theories, all equally plausible and none of them true."
