Notes, topics or text 

"Friday night My Darling It is sad to say goodbye to you even for four days—I become very dependent on you in all this misery and isolation.

The Carnegie Report on the Balkan Wars is a really great document, written as history ought to be written. If the young were taught by such books, there would be no wars between civilized countries. I think I can make a magazine article* out of it, of a sort that could be printed by the Contemporary. It is very well written, restrained and charitable, full of love.

I am sorry you have such bad headaches now-a-days Dearest. I hope Newington will be restful. My deepest love is with you always my Darling. Your B."

*"A True History of Europe's Last War", Labour Leader, 12: 11 Mar. 1915.
