Author comments again on McNair’s Latin studies and refers to an exam he is due to take on the day of the letter. He himself doubts his talents as a writer and admits to bouts of mental depression. Writing in 1939, Health-Stubbs reveals that he is no longer shocked or surprised by Adolf Hitler’s actions and has become apathetic towards the news. He tells McNair about a review he read in the Times of the King and Queen [King George VI and Queen Elizabeth]'s visit to the National Institute for the Blind, although he was not present.
