It is strange that I can never think of writing any account of my life without thinking of Pauline Mills and wondering what she will say of it. Pauline is rather given to reading the autobiographies of distinguished people-unless she has left off since I disappointed her-and finding in them new persuasions of the fundamental lightness of her scheme of things.
