Notes, topics or text 

"Monday evg."

Mrs. Whitehead very ill again: "I don't believe she can last much longer. I don't know what will become of Whitehead."

Dinner—Moore and Wittgenstein and youth, etc. etc. Miss Maitland, Karin and her Countess.

"Wittgenstein disliked all the ladies except Karin, whom he was quite smitten with. He said Fredigood [Maitland] was 'philosophical', which is his worst term of abuse. I think he meant that he felt her sentimental. He is exceedingly critical of both men and women."

Gone from "dull German book" to Hume: "He is such a joy".

"Parts of Principia Mathematica will bear comparison with anybody."
