My Dearest Life

I can't find any words good enough for our two days—they were so absolutely perfect. It was delightful talking to you about my work. I must try to find more things to say about it without being too technical. And I love the thought of reading philosophy with you. There is a great deal that we might read—any quantity of Plato—Berkeley—parts of Descartes—it will all be delightful. And I can talk of my own plans for future work. Only work always turns out rather different from what one has expected. I thought P.* felt my presence almost unendurable, and thinking so, I admired his behaviour very much indeed. I felt a sense of shame in his presence—not reasonable but instinctively. I am glad the first meeting is over—it will be easier another time."

Will be at the Whiteheads' tonight.

*[Philip Morrell]
