One horizontal fold, very mild wear to extremities; "Hill of Devi. Dinner at the Savile, to welcome Ragnar Svanström as a member. He was dining with Meyer, who was 1/4 hour late, so he sat between A. D. Peters & Charles ???, delighted to be so affably received. I settled Down at the round table with John Morris, who told me - after a night's visit to King's to hear the 3rd Prog St. John Passion - that ??? has received very few votes for his Provost election, but that he had stayed up till 3 am with E.M.F. who had told him the story of Dewas Senior. I had been shown Morgan's 2 letters apropos his ??? in ???, ??? ??? ??? based on a fine knowledge of character. What had baffled us both was why the adjective 'saintly' had been used of his unworthy ???. "Did you get the answer?" "I will tell you all after dinner." It started like this. "Did you know that anything definite - in the way of an affair, I mean - had occurred in Morgan's life before Bob?" "Yes, he told Lytton, but it was a dead secret. Twice the subject came up and I remembered leaning over the Bachs, on the bridge, till Clare was indelibly imprinted on my mind, without being made aware of what had occurred. I only know it was in India." "Well, he read me the whole account, unlocking a little cabinet to extract the diary. Then I spent another 2 hours writing it down. You must not repeat [not repeat underlined] what I shall briefly recount. M must have been about 40. The weather was very hot and he became more and more sexually excited for academics, perhaps because there was no person who had attracted him. However masturbation was of no avail. He wanted physical contact and companionship, yet his hunger was as acute as his sexual distress. At last he found a young man of about 15 with whom he made a date - to meet outside the palace, on a road, at 7 p.m. Little did he know that his advances had been the subject, for some little time, of speculation in the bazaars. The boy was a braggart & no doubt he had enquired what he should ask in exchange for this strange friendship with the Sahib. Rumors of this betrayal reached M's ear and he took umbrage. For several days he pondered. Should he go to his master? He did not keep the appointment, but punched up sufficient courage to broach the subject. He was politely received - to his surprise, sympathetically. It was not properly understood, he thought, but quite suddenly he was informed that one of the ??? had a bastard son who was so inclined. "Leave it to me - all will be well" An appointment was arranged. Mutual dislike and antipathy was manifest from the start. And hence the matter was dropped. Not so very much later, M was asked what had happened: knowing full well of the failure of his 1st attempt - he had forgotten M's predicament for a few days, that was all - he said he had now heard tell of a young barber who might well be found accommodating. Another apptmt was made. The boy should come shave him. He arrived one morning, and was asked to come again the following day. "What did you do?" John had asked, knowing the bashful habits, the ??? approach, the David-like advance "I first touched one of his lower buttons - there - and all was well." His visits were repeated, and no one was an the wiser, though on occasion strange places - and secret - had to be discovered: under the dust sheets in an empty room behind flimsy screws, in a secluded part of the ???, often they were interrupted. "The youth must have adored the intrigue!" I broke in. "I think he did. He went on a ??? with them. But he flew higher." One day, wanting to establish his position in the palace, he chose to enter his master's room while he was resting. "have you know, if someone touches your feet, you have to listen to his request." [I didn't] He placed his hands on the soles of his feet and begged that he might remain after the departure of the Gughish Sahib!" It was granted. "For my sake" M said the man was a Saint! But the boy told his master that the Gughish Sahib parting present had not been big enough!"; shelved case 3.
