Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
X is strongly suspected of stealing some ideas from a novel of J, given him for reading. Should he not have avoided it?
Of course he should. But if you knew much of literary and artistic people, you would not be surprised at anything they do.
I advised her to get her book published now with your approval. In that case it has to be done by N, but that will at once wound X who has taken so much trouble to go through the MS.
I have no objection to J's doing what is proposed, provided it is not done under my authority. As you can understand, I don't want any farther bust-up in a delicate quarter.
It has really pained me very much. Everywhere the same humanity!
Of course. That's what I have been telling all along. It is not without reason that I am eager to see something better on this well-meaning but woe-begone planet.
