Scope and content
Includes entry on first page which reads ‘Since I took up again to diarykeeping some months ago, I have written what would make a rather larger volume I think if printed. It is not mere diary dottings by any means. It is a kind of record of what I think about myself & my doings & most that concerns me & a sort of summing up of my life previously recorded in a diary of many years duration.…If so, I am writing what would make a large work in print. I may very well be making a fool of myself as the saying is. How many with more ability than I possess, have left a mass of MSS after them & how often no one took the trouble to read the same. In some ways my case is peculiar. I am most willing to concede that I have been very silly & very much every way but what I should have been long ago…’ (20 Feb. 1913)
