Notes, topics or text 

Busy at Cambridge "altering the position of matter in space — a form of activity I dislike, because it achieves nothing important."

Cunningly arranged for only two lectures a week.

"The odd letter [now in the Russell Archives—dated 21 Feb. 1911] I received this morning": from Archibald Henderson, student of his and professor of pure mathematics at University of North Carolina "[which apparently exists]".

Is sending her "various unsuccessful attempts at writing, mixed up with private reflections, that I made nine years ago." [These are with the Ottoline Morrell papers at the University of Texas; copies are in the Russell Archives.]

On Cambridge—"civilized" half of him.

BR declined an invitation from the Astronomer Royal of Ireland to lecture in Dublin for a term.

"Have you seen that there is a thing by Mrs. Whitehead in this week's Nation? ["Suspense", The Nation (Lon.), 22 April 1911, 125-6.] She has been expecting it for some time, but it was delayed. It seemed to me to have great merit."
