"Thursday mg. My Darling Yes, the treatment of Germans here is utterly abominable—so is the letter of the learned men. The whole tone of the Nation* is utterly horrible. On the other hand the Literary Supplement today is very good. I have got a copy of an American newspaper, obviously pro-English, but having an article on atrocities, saying the English are the only nation not accused of them and the Russians are the nations against whom there is the strongest evidence. It then briefly mentions a few horrors in East Prussia. How little we are allowed to know of all that! Thanks for telling me about Karin's wedding. Kar Cox is coming to lunch with me on Sunday. Last night I had a Louvain theologian to dinner, a dull man, stupid, and ignorant outside his subject. The four Belgians I have seen so far have been far less deeply affected by the war than many English people.—Piccoli has just been here, bringing me a splendid article by Romain Rolland, Tolstoyan, saying all that should be said."
