Notes, topics or text 

"Sunday night" "Last night I went as a guest to a meeting of an Oxford and Cambridge Society—Goldie, Keynes, Wallas, Marvin, J.A. Smith, Zimmerman, McDougall etc.—about twenty people altogether—they discussed the question of terms of peace. Almost all were just as happy as if there were no war, and enjoyed themselves re-making the map of Europe. I had not realized such people were so totally heartless. Goldie spoke very well and movingly; J.A. Hobson was good; Keynes sensible but cold; the rest dreadful."

"Today I have been writing an outline on "Why Nations Love War" for N. Angell's War and Peace."*

*"Why Nations Love War", War and Peace, 21 Nov. 1914, 20-1. [Goldie = G. Lowes Dickinson.]
