Notes, topics or text 

Monday evg. "My Darling I seem to have made a muddle of addresses—I ought to have told you to address still here today. However I shall be all the more glad of your letter tomorrow when I get it.—I went to the press on behalf of Jourdain but with no result. I got a large bundle of proofs of Whitehead's and my book—our second vol. will presumably come out some time in the autumn. Then there will be a third and last, which ought to be out about this time next year.

[Vol. II: actually April 1912; vol. III: actually April 1913. When did plans materialize for a fourth?]

I went to pay a dinner call at the Mirrlees' but nothing of interest happened. Otherwise my time has been occupied in tidying up, throwing away, packing etc.—all occupations which I resent as unworthy of an immortal soul, or even more rash in a mortal soul which must make the most of its moments. My mind grows distraught and stupid after very little of the mechanism.

I am to lecture to some summer school at Girton in August on philosophy and common sense—I shall give them a chapter of my shilling book. They give me four guineas, which is why I do it."
