I.A. Richards Papers, Magdalene College & Library
Patricia thanks Richards for her note and visit, but declines lunch with I.A. Richards and herself ("we both find it interferes too much with work"), suggesting tea or dinner instead. She discusses her preferred title and goes into BR's thoughts on the matter.
The file also includes Richards' diary entry for 1940/10/04, where she reports on BR's first William James Lecture: "4 truisms, 1 radical mistake. 3 witticisms, 7 pleasantries—great success". It's as if she is quoting someone—perhaps I.A. Richards.
