Sylvia Townsend Warner - 17 September, 1930
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 66:
Then it began to rain and I lit a fire, and Teague appeared with roses from behind an umbrella like the shield of Achilles, but plainer, and walked in. [...] He began to play a bit of one of the organ fugues, and I heard the affinity between his touch and the way painters float their colour onto the canvas.
