Sylvia Townsend Warner in Maiden Newton - 14 September, 1971

from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 359:

Finished rubbing lavender to the slow movement of the 3rd Beethoven concerto; and as I did so, in the long room which is so much hers, I suddenly felt that if I could sit down beside her that would be all the immortality I would need:to sit down beside her & flow back into her keeping.
