Evidence

Virginia Woolf to Vanessa Bell, 3 May 1934: "We only got the Times yesterday and read about George [Duckworth]. Well, there"s nothing much to be said at this distance, in the wilds of Kerry. Poor old creature -- I wonder what happened and why he was at Freshwater [...] here we are a great deal further and wilder than if in Italy or Greece. We only see Irish papers, now and then; there are no towns, only an occasional small fishing village and as we changed our plans, all our letters have gone wrong. It was mere chance we found a copy of the Times lying about."
