Notes, topics or text 

From Edith Russell's transcription when she was Edith Finch:

"Apparently before NY, California was taking the same line against Bertie—the Catholics there especially—they were treated as 'undesirable aliens' etc."

"B. by the way told me Hocking had written him a letter implying they would like him to resign the Harvard appointment, which he determined not to do. NY—the College—has never sent him any word, since the letter confirming his appointment and expressing their sense of 'privilege' in his coming connection with the university—until the other day Meade <Mead> the president, wired inviting him to lunch. He feels this as it is, bad manners—that all should have been transacted by the City Government, is very bitter against La Guardia."

"I quite agree with you that she should not trust B. with charming women for his own sake as well as hers. He might I think come to tea with me personally as an old friend but when he walks over to tea, as yesterday with little Conrad, she very soon follows. I have nothing intimate or personal to say to B. Our ways have diverged too far...."
