So here I am, once again worried about women, about the only thing I find important enough to write about any more, although that in itself might be something worth writing about.

Doris, with whom I spent a couple of weeks at the end of the month, and in the process became more attached to than I expected, has been in Denmark lately, writing passionate letters bewailing her inability to write passionate letters, and telling he how I am the only man for her, which I have heard somewhere before, and am not so dead certain to believe.

Yesterday the tone was a little different, with news that a couple of Italian law students were moving in to the same place where she and Ingrid are staying; today silence. Well, what the hell. Here am I on the other side being a real bastard both to her and to poor dear Mechtild, who loves me with an all-consuming agony which, she claims, has woken her up at 5 am every day this year. Oh, Mechtild, what have I done to you? I think she's right, though, we're not suited to each other: but she's far too sweet and nice a girl hurt the way I can't help hurting. I seem to myself more like Guy Belsham every day, and I don't like it. Oh God, I don't want to hurt anybody - poor Mechtild. And, probably, poor Doris - somehow I have the feeling on the other hand, played off against my fears, that she still is faithful to me, and will also be hurt. Oh Christ - why should all this be so difficult?
