Notes, topics or text 

BR will be paid for writing the appreciation of George Bernard Shaw, but not for the time recording it. He also asks him to correct any mistakes in the attached "news" obituary of himself:

"Would it amuse you to correct any mistakes in the attached 'news' obituary? Don't complain of its inadequacy! There will be other tributes, not to speak of the tears of the spirit shed by those of your disciples who happen to survive you. Yours sincerely, [unsigned]"

The writer is probably Kenneth Matthews, who in 1943 published British Philosophers.
