Reading Experience:

'I have read Tom's [note]book. I had no right to perhaps, without telling him but he has read mine and I did. It gave me a real shock - perhaps because it so confirmed my own picture of what happened and which he so strenuously denied [...] Of course it is painful to me to read of all his natural, happy ecstasy over Frances, because it shows me so clearly what I have missed in him'
