THE TARPEIAN ROCK

in my life have I suffered such conflict and torment of mind. For twenty
five years I had been studying England and I had grown attached to its
traditions. I was not unaware of its political mistakes; I had frankly spoken of them in time of peace; but I knew its courage, its tenacity; I believed that its victory would assure the future freedom of France. I still ardently hoped that the two peoples would one day fmd themselves united, but I had, alas, an agonizing presentiment that before this came about there might be - and that before long - distressing and perhaps sanguinary quarrels.
I had promised in the preceding year to deliver the Lowell Lectures in Boston in October 1940. And it had been agreed in Paris with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that even if the war were not over, I was not on any account to miss this important engagement. And so I had among my papers a letter giving me permission to go to Boston, but it did not provide for my departure until the month of September. Did I have the legal right, on the strength of this official letter, to go to America in July? I consulted the Marquis de Castellane, Charge d'Affaires at the French Embassy since the resignations of Corbin and Cambon. He said:
`There is no reason at all to hesitate ... Since you have permission to go to the United States, go there ... And go at once.'
He gave me a French diplomatic visa. With the letters from the Lowell Institute I had no difficulty with my American visa.
Before leaving I went to say good-bye to Maurice Baring, who was living at Rottingdean near Brighton, and who was very ill. Lady Phipps and her son Allan, a naval officer temporarily on sick leave, accompanied me. Maurice, suffering from paralysis agitans, trembled so violently that his whole bed was shaken. On his shoulder perched a bright-feathered parrakeet. The trembling, which shook the bird, blended the colours and produced a confused and iridescent image. Like Alain and Bergson, Baring's mind was intact. As was his custom, he talked on graceful poetic and frivolous themes and ended suddenly on a profound, religious thought. We left him after a short time in order not to tire him, and while waiting for the train all three of us went for a walk on the seashore. Everywhere soldiers were at work erecting barbed wire entanglements and constructing casemates. A few more weeks of respite and England would be ready to repel an invasion. The monotonous sound of the pebbles rolled by the waves calmed me. How many men and women
