Dunn brought to lunch Charles Robinson who has designed the cover of "Journalism for Women": a very young, unkempt, pale, nervous man with tremulous eyes. One could see that not long since he had been more nervous than he is today. Contact with the world was making him less like a startled faun. He told me that his design for my book had been so much liked that it had resulted in orders for twenty other covers.
Phillpotts was extremely enthusiastic about the merits of "A Man from the North". It seemed strange and unreal to be treated by this finely serious novelist as an artist of the same calibre as himself.
