Yes,I can meet you in the x Mall Tavern next Wed (11th) at, say, 1.15. I'll make a point of breaking-off mid-sentence at 1 p.m. in Holland Park and xx dashing off.... Good idea of yrs to link the Rammage visit with a meeting. Didn’t expect you’d want to meet Harbinson. I’m willing to meet him in Brighton as Brighton is a place I like very much and I love a few hours there. I’ve sometimes gone to Brighton alone and it never fails to do me good. Perhaps this tonic effect wears off for people who actaully live there. Had another epistle from the boy today. He would 'be delighted to see me' etc. Actually,I think he’s got the law more on his mind than the new book, whether this is a xxx of paranoia and folie de grandeur ,or has a basis in fact,I’ll try to decide when we meet. He’s got a thing about Hailsham,that sounds a wee bit like Freddy’s persecution mania in years past. Claims that Hailsham rigs the courts. Yet says that the judges "didn’t like Hailsham or me since we both xxxx know some squalid aspects of the majesty" (Ref back to 'majesty of the law'). The letters,incidentally,are strikingly phrased. Quite a character. I’ll chew over yr kind comments on the C.D. poem. What I was trying to suggest was what might have been in his mind near his death. Text
