Abstract:

Mentioning that their collaborative work, "The Passion of Dr. Ludovicus," has been submitted to the publisher Routledge. Noting that Dowson and Plarr visited Sayle at Cambridge and "found the rival Alma M. sadly wanting." Disparaging the students as "not subtle," and noting that the library has no copy of Johannes Secundus ("He is Alfred de Musset in Latin -- no: he is Catullus and more than Catullus rendered into Renaissance Latin"). Describing his meeting with Herbert Williams (editor of The Critic), and describing him as "a greater snob, but no quite such a cad" as Plarr led Dowson to believe, and mentioning that Dowson is "not particularly keen" on accepting the sub-editorship as Sayle has almost convinced Dowson that "journalism is the second death. Referencing the closure of the affair with the barmaid called "Lena," noting "I will break it off as quickly as I can without disillusioning the girl too much." Hoping to introduce Moore to Plarr.
