Notes, topics or text 

BR assures the Society that he understands the circumstances: "`God's workers' deceive in wondrous ways."

Included with the letter is a request ("inserted quite unknown to Lord Russell by his secretary") for donations to the Bertrand Russell Peace Fund. The insert is now taped to the letter. The reply was drafted in Schoenman's hand on the incoming letter at record 82034.

The carbon for this letter is at record 82035. The letter was not published. The original is held in the Adelaide University Archives, which published a story on it with images of BR's letter and of a carbon copy of the Society's letter to BR. (See https://blogs.adelaide.edu.au/uni-archives/2015/02/13/bertrand-russell-and-the-adelaide-university-agnostics-society/.) The carbon omits the first 2 names of the signatories (see record 82034).
