From Edith Russell's transcription when she was Edith Finch:
"Alys gave me much gossip. She talked to me a long time about Bertie with a good deal of feeling, of regret for the waste of his life on sex, but without bitterness or personal regard. She says that 'Miss Spence' is a Somerville woman, who went to teach at the school, fell in love with Bertie, began to have a child which 'fortunately miscarried'.... BR went off to London to live with 'Miss Spence', whom he introduces to all his friends, took to Spain this year, and, wants to marry.... Dora ... will probably divorce him as he wishes this autumn. He has not abandoned his children.... Next year he is sending them to 'another crank school', established by Dorothy Willard Straight and her English husband <Leonard Elmhirst>.... Bertie is hard up and inherited nothing from Aunt Agatha who lately died...."
