"Friday mg." "I didn't see Wittgenstein yesterday, and don't know how he is getting on. The scene with him about his nervous troubles took a lot out of me, and I have been tired ever since.... While I was talking with him I was very calm and matter-of-fact, making light of the whole thing, but that made me feel it all the more afterwards. It is rather awful realizing that a person one cares for is bound to have a life full of great unhappiness.

Later. At this point Wittgenstein himself arrived, much more cheerful, very full of some discoveries in his work, and no longer interested in his health. I hope it will last. He has taken up my time so that I must stop."
