“…I am in London social whirl right now.  I am being most elegantly wined and dined in their homes by Morgan Forster (the author of “Passage To India”), Willie Maugham, Aldous Huxley, Evelyn Waugh, Angus Wilson, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Wystan Auden, Gerald Hamilton and Cecil Beaton.  The latter is having me for cocktails and the Princess Margaret will be there.  You know I had high tea with her through Cecil at her home Clarence House in Pall Mall.  The English have been lovely to me.  I shall miss them so much…"
