"By way of compensating him for my heretical indifference to the loveliness of Greek - a loveliness that came back to me in quieter days, more potent than life, more permanent than war - I enclosed with my letter the cutting of a recent ""Times"" leader which had encouraged me to hope for the future resurrection of pre-war literary values." [In the next sentence Vera Brittain states that the Times leader was called ""The Unsubmerged City"".]
