Notes, topics or text 

Written on letterhead of Hotel Bellerive au Lac, Zurich. "The Swiss are passionately Anglophil, and very glad to be liberated from Nazi encirclement. I try not to depress them." International politics and the bomb. "Meanwhile Rabbis and Muftis, Jinnah and Nehru, Tito and the Italians, etc., play their silly games. I am ashamed of belonging to the species homo sapiens." "I go about with the feeling that within 20 years England will have ceased to exist. It makes everything hectic, like the approach of closing time at a party in a hotel—'we are for the night.' A few bombs will destroy all our cities, and the rest will slowly die of hunger."
