Evidence

"Of course I read a great deal. I still continue my studies of French historical development. I have the best new book there is; ?The Development of Modern France? (1870 ? 1939) by D W Brogan, Fellow of Peterhouse and professor of Political Science in the University of Cambridge. It is a great book, and I am learning about many people who were formerly just streets to me. Remember rue Albert de Mun, I now find Albert to have been quite a sizeable person. You remember I expressed in my last letter my dislike of Clemenceau as biographed by L?on Daudet. Such mention as I find of him in this book up to the moment, (?L?Affaire?) still seem to make him pretty dingy, as Harold would say I shall have to read it several times, (the book I mean). For light relief I have Edna Ferber?s autobiography ?A Peculiar Treasure?. It is specially worth while, a plain straight record of a real hard worker, thrilled with her job, and wanting nothing else. She has written the book stressing always that she is a Jew and this gives of course, an added interest to the work. If it comes your way, its worth reading."
