"Saturday aftn." "Last night we had a little meeting engineered by Wittgenstein to make Moore chairman of the Moral Science Club, to keep the discussion in order. But though we did this, a young parson there took the line (which is true) that the young don't dare to talk if Moore and I are present, so we decided to have two sorts of meetings, at one of which only the young should be present. I think this was a very good thing, but Wittgenstein was furious, misled by hatred of the parson, who is hateful: he doesn't like being asked questions he can't answer. He was very funny, so obviously uncomfortable out of the pulpit, but his proposal seemed to me good."
