Re her visit to BR at Richmond Street—BR has his own servant to look after him and John and his family have their ménage apart. "Oh, dear Colette—when I arrived someone was playing the accordion at the back of the house ... I said something about it to B. and he told me that is all John does—all day, and for ages he has been behaving like that." Nalle says John is strange but not fit for an asylum. Susan, his wife, is grey pale.
With John's children BR "... becomes gay and full of fun and joy, he gets patient and kind and understanding and helpful without for a moment being sloppy or sentimental...."
Nalle has hardly ever seen BR except in a "jolly mood". They laugh together so much and Nalle says "... there is no one else on Earth I laugh so much with as with B." (S. Turcon note)
