"Tues. night"

"My Aunt Agatha is very kind and nice, but longing to find fault with Alys. I have had to cope with her, hating the false appearance of generosity. I feel such a Tartuffe, it is loathsome. That's why I am so furious with Jane*—she forced me to do a dirty job for nothing. I have no objection to plain lying, but lying that makes oneself out a saint is fancy lying. However it doesn't really matter. My Aunt asked if I could get freedom, and when I said no, she said that was very hard on me. But she wouldn't sympathize if she knew the truth.

*[Jane Harrison]

Dearest, dearest, I do want you. It is ages since I saw you last."
