If, in the pursuit of amateur archaeology, in a Roman Camp you come across a rusty wheel bearing the initials 'L.B.C.' it is unwise to conclude that the L stands for Fifty (old Roman) and the B.C. for ' Before Christ,' or, indeed,
• that the wheel is either genuine Roman or even a genuine Roman forgery which the B.C. suggests.

The Romance of Revolt
I found in Turgenev, first of all, a society of eager and hopeful young people such as I could have loved if I had known them, and infinitely more sympathetic to me than any young people whom I knew before I went to Cambridge. They combined hope and indignation in proportions which were entirely congenial to me. They were oppressed or seduced by cynical aristocrats who made me shudder. They attempted heroic tasks, and came to grief heroically. They won my heart, and retained it down to the moment of their final defeat by the Bolsheviks.'
