It was clear that Gustl had reason to think we might click, so I readily agreed. I thought Gustl's gesture was so nice, that I told him not to be afraid to come and see me if things didn't go better with him. We met a few days later in a little park, not far off from where I lived. It had a children's bathing pool, and swings and other playtime devices. I found it a delightful place, ringing with children's carefree voices, and the splash of their small bodies as they threw themselves into the water.

One or two of us were pursuing choristers or telegraph boys (in imagination), others young beauties of our own generation (with varying success), and only one, as far as I can remember, liked older men and had yielded to the importunities of a famous writer who used to visit Cambridge fairly frequently. A friend who had grown to be very close to me, interested in literary experiments as I was, a non-Etonian, told me that he had agreed to go to bed with a young man who languished for him, quite clinically described the episode to me as if it had not been more than an interesting experiment, and admitted that the physical side had slightly disgusted him.

I had the impression that he had been keeping a careful eye on me. As soon as I turned up at his house, he showed me almost excessive friendliness, far more than I expected. The party was mixed, and very crowded in the comparatively small rooms. He introduced me to a large number of people, both male and female, whose names I immediately forgot, and then suggested I sit down on the floor beside a young man who greeted me with especial sympathy just as if he had wanted to meet me for a long time while my host went to get me a drink.
