A letter to Nalle with much insight into BR's relationships, his contradicting views on Russia, his divorce with Peter and much more.
Re Frank Russell's ex-wife Elizabeth's books Vera and In the Mountains which CM sends to Nalle: "In the Mountains, which describes how she dragged herself back to her Swiss chalet to collapse on its doorstep and lick the wounds caused by Frank...."
On BR's past relationships Malleson writes, "In 1914 he brought Helen Dudley all the way from U.S.A. and set her up in his flat with intention to marry her. Then he made up his row with Ottoline, and Helen returned, her heart smashed, to die in a lunatic asylum. ... When he had fixed up everything to marry Dora, who was already 3 months pregnant, he wrote me that they two would never separate permanently as long as they lived. Nine years later he was head over heels in love with P. Two years later he left Dora. Four years later he married Peter." (S. Turcon note)
