Sylvia Townsend Warner - 28 June, 1961

from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 273:

The piano tuner came - just when I needed him for purposes of study. After he had gone, I began to play some Chopin - and Valentine returning from Dorch., insisted that I use the empty afternoon to play on. So I wallowed like an old hulk through the Pastoral Sonata, and the first Sonata alla Fantasia.
