Notes, topics or text 

"Friday night" Came back from the Whiteheads tonight.

"I went to the Whiteheads as soon as I reached London, and stayed to dinner. Mrs. Whitehead persuaded me to abandon the plan of writing to Alys about a divorce, because if it came out it wd. prevent a divorce ever. Whitehead and I had a good talk about work, and I brought back stacks of his ms."

"Wittgenstein stayed late last night and read me bits of the work he has done. I think it is as good as anything that has ever been done in logic. I was utterly worn out when he went—too tired to sleep much."

"This morning I finished re-writing Lecture I*—I lengthened it by giving grounds for preferring reason to instinct in metaphysics."

*Apparently now the same as Ch. I, "Current Tendencies", of Our Knowledge.
