You were right. I could have just left my note to the first two lines
but decided to expand things a bit with the easy to get information.
Somewhere in her book Seymour-Jones mentions some statistic like
"X percent of the population of the UK made less than Y pounds per
X was quite high (90% ???) and Y quite low (100 pounds ???). If anyone
sees this in their reading sometime please post it.
Earlier in the marriage the Eliot's income came from writing, editing,
teaching, reviewing, working in the bank and Vivien doing typing for
Russel. They also had a large interest free loan from Russell and
money coming in from both families. They knew how to spend money a
lot better than they knew how to save it. Too bad 'Cats' didn't come
till later ;-)
