Notes, topics or text 

Swinnerton was looking for a place to stay in London. "The late Lady MacCarthy (then Mrs. Desmond MacCarthy) very kindly offered to try to find me something. Her quest took her into the neighbourhood of Fitzroy Square, where she met Bertrand Russell. He said 'What are you doing here?' She said 'Looking for lodgings for a single man.' His reply was 'He can have my studio'. In consequence I rented from him a furnished studio in No. 5 Fitzroy Street. I occupied this studio from December 2nd, 1918 until November or December 1919, when, the landlord having sold the house, I was forced to remove. Bertrand Russell again came to the rescue, allowing me to rent a flat at 34 Russell Chambers ... until (I think) 1923...."
