"In 1949 BR had to choose between sacrificing Conrad to me or me to Conrad. First he chose the former. When Peter turned the screw tighter, he chose the latter; then juggled for all he was worth to keep us both. Result: he lost us both." Re Conrad: "he is the image of his mother: outwardly and inwardly: he's a 'hysteric'; and 'spoilt' beyond anything you could imagine. ... He has 3 good points: 2 from BR (brain and affection); one from Peter: he is beautifully made, physically...."
Re John: "John, BR's heir, is described by Nalle as far from normal; he spends most of his time playing a concertina; he does nothing to support his wife (also rather abnormal) and the two little girls."
Nalle got next to nothing in love from BR. In 1949, Malleson wrote Phyllis Urch exactly why BR ceased being in love with her. (S. Turcon note)
