Trinity College had invited me to a five year lectureship and I had accepted the invitation. It carried with it a fellowship and a right to rooms in College.I went to Cambridge and found that the rooms were altogether delightful ... But the problem of housing Peter and Conrad remained. Cambridge was incredibly full, and at first the best that I could achieve was squalid rooms in a lodging house. There they were underfed and miserable, while I was living luxuriously in College. As soon as it became clear that I was going to get money out of my lawsuit against Barnes, I bought a house at Cambridge, where we lived for some time.
