Notes, topics or text 

On BR's Autobiography: "There was much that Ottoline objected to: I hoped that he'd have heeded her, but shouldn't be surprised if he hasn't. There was an unforgivable bit about Wife No. 1; a very cheap bit about Dora and me; and a bit about Priscilla (my mother) about which I wrote him...." 

On BR's relationship with George Santayana: "As far as I know, he was as bitter an enemy as B. ever had. ... And who the hell is S. to say that B. 'flopped' and 'is nothing'. My guess is that B. will be remembered long long after S.'s name is completely erased from memory." 

Malleson refers Nalle to Beatrice Webb's book Our Partnership and "... turn to all pages given in the Index under B's name: the portrait she gives of him will show you what he was at time he met Ottoline: you'll hardly recognize the B. you know." (S. Turcon note)
