Notes, topics or text 

"Sat. mg." "I am most awfully busy—I have been translating and copying and classifying the notes of Wittgenstein's work, as I shall want them for lecturing on Logic at Harvard—that takes a lot of time, but is now finished."*

*BR's re-written version of Wittgenstein's "Notes on Logic". See McGuinness's article in Revue Internationale de Philosophie, no. 102 (March 1973).

Has "Moore to instruct in Wittgenstein's system, as Moore is going to visit him in hopes of understanding him."

Jourdain and his secretary in love: "She is the person who took down Wittgenstein's remarks in short-hand in the autumn and who does most of my typing."**

**If this statement is correct, Jourdain and she did not marry, for Laura Breglia, Jourdain's only wife, denies ever being his secretary. See her letter to K. Blackwell [not in BRACERS].
