31 ALL MY SINS REMEh4BERED I got through by one mark-so I was told. You must have been a master of the art of not quite falling off the fence. It was extremely uncomfortable. How do you think you and your girl-friend did in the combined assault on the Inter. Marital Sc. exam? Failed-obviously . You certainly did not get a Fellowship at Oxford. I wouldn’t even have dared to think of it. Or the Headmastership of your old school. Luckily for the school and for you. 1 think it is just as well that there was a sexual barrier so that you failed to marry any of your boy-lnends.
So I stopped my attempts to be cured. In this context it was very comforting to be offered a chance of curing an adolescent boy, the son of an army General, by using the same methods as had been-so far-unable to achieve the anticipated cure. Who anticipated it-you or your analyst? I don’t know how much I believed it. I had half believed the surgeon‘s story that my torn cartilege would be fit for the Varsity Match. But I didn’t consider that a half-belief, or even a half-cure, warranted my risking Oxford’s chance to beat Cambridge, and accordingly told a disappointed Moresby-White that I could not be included in the team.
What about this infernal problem of Inter. , learning anatomy and physiology, earning enough to pay €100 in debts, and not being sunk (without a trace of course) by your partner? I could not find the answer. So . , . you passed by one mark! That is not funny: it may be psycho-analysis though. Anyway, Dr Feel-it-in-the-Past sent me the adolescent boy. I did not have much chance to tell him to feel it in the past because he dealt with that problem by not coming, telling his father he came regularly, and pocketing the fee which, though small, did at least defray his expenses in travel away from the General.
