I thought it was kinda interesting when I read it a while ago. Then recently
I read a bit from Ernest Wood who was CWL's secretary at the time these were
written and as I recall it, he got sort of disillusioned with it all as he
witnessed CWL amending his story to fit in new people who had come into his
circle of friends. I think Ernest also decided to put it in the fictional area.
