295 note 1 [add at end:] In a letter of 10 October 1922 Harold Laski wrote to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr, of ‘dons who spent most of their days in that state of resentful coma that they dignified by the name of research’; he repeated the epigram in a letter to the same correspondent of 1 March 1925, referring to ‘that state of resentful coma we call research’. Holmes–Laski Letters: The Correspondence of Mr Justice Holmes and Harold J. Laski 1916–1935, ed. Mark DeWolfe Howe (Cambridge, Mass., 1953), 454, 716. Since this volume was published in the year in which IB wrote this letter to MacBride, it seems safe to assume that it is his (direct or indirect) source.
