Philip Morell : Letter to John Middleton Murry regarding his review of Siegfried Sassoon, Counter-attack, and Other Poems, in The Nation 13 July 1918

29 July: 'I'm paralysed by the task of describing a week end at Garsington. I suppose we spoke some million words between us [...] There was Gertler; Shearman & Dallas for tea; Brett, Ottoline, 3 children & Philip. The string which united everything together was Philip's attack on Murry in The Nation for his review of Sassoon [...] to prove his case Philip read Murry's article, his letter, & his letter to Murry, three times over, so I thought, emphasising his points, & lifting his finger to make us attend. And there was Sassoon's letter of gratitude too. I think Ott. was a little bored.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Philip Morrell
