Reading Experience:

'I have been too much bothered & depressed by the S.L. ['South Lodge', Ford's code for Violet Hunt] book to write [...] In the meantime Rebecca [West] naturally has sailed in & made matters excruciatingly more disagreeable. She has told several people that V.H. is an admirable and martyred saint & that every word in the book is true.'
