"Sat. mg." "While I was preparing my speech Wittgenstein appeared in a great state of mind because Johnson (with whom I advised him to coach) wrote and said he wouldn't take him any more, practically saying he argued too much instead of learning his lesson like a good boy. He came to me to know what truth there was in Johnson's feeling. Now he is terribly persistent, hardly lets one get a word in, and is generally considered a bore. As I really like him very much, I was able to hint these things to him without offending him.... Wittgenstein says Johnson's own ideas seemed to him muddled, but his comments on W's ideas seemed excellent; evidently however J. resented W. not taking his word as law.... It was a delicate matter talking to Wittgenstein." [No letter number written on letter.]
