Reading Experience:

'Friday 30th July. Had luncheon in the office today and stayed in reading my Economics. I am doing it more systematically this time. I hope I shall be able to keep it up as I know I shall find it interesting once I break through the crust of introductory chapters. When I have done a little of this groundwork it will make me able to understand and appreciate more exactly the work modern economists ? Keynes, Marshall, Webb, etc? This is an old ambition of mine. I hope to stagger through Marx some day.'
