"Tuesday night" "My Darling—I am sorry to have had to write such scraps today—it is very difficult here to get away and be alone. You suggest that I should not forget you. Of course it is very difficult not to, but I will try to remember your existence once in a way if I can manage it. If you have to go to Marienbad the end of this month, we are terribly near the end of our time. It will be difficult going back to brief and occasional meetings. But we shall never lose what has come to us in this time. We are united now in all that is most important to us both, and that ought to make times of separation more bearable. Still, I feel they will be very difficult.

I have been trying tonight to talk a little about religion, to see how the things we have spoken of together would sound before other people. It was only a moderate success, but I couldn't bring myself to say very much. When I am away from you, the chief thing I think of is your faith in good things, and the way it makes all my best live. But I must not grow too dependent on you in that way, and I must not let my life grow soft."
