Notes, topics or text 

A long gossipy letter concerning BR and Peter (Patricia Russell). Re Peter, Malleson says: "... she is incapable of honest thinking, she takes the view that lovers, before marriage, are OK; and after marriage, they are also OK if one is out to 'save their souls'...." Malleson thinks a divorce would damage Conrad: "which B. does not want to do (though everybody else thinks Conrad is rotten and nearly done for by his temperament)."

Malleson goes on at lengths gossiping about Peter's looks and her domestic abilities.

Malleson says BR married Dora for only one reason: "in order to have children". (S. Turcon note)
