The London Library, that great good place, has launched a magazine. This should send a ripple through St James's Square. Their first cover story is by way of being a scoop - unpublished letters from T.S.Eliot to the Library. The highlight is this:
'I have not the slightest recollecton of ever meeting or having had any communication with John MacCaig Thorburn... but in any case I could not possibly vouch for the validity or justification of anybody's work in a field such as Astrological Problematic.'
And so John MacCaig Thorburn slipped quietly into the dark.
