An undated incident


The Johannine Writings recall an incident, unrecorded in the Diaries, but obviously dating from 1967 because of my feeling under threat that Audrey would leave me (XXIII.1–3):
1.Try to see it my way,
do I have to keep on talking till I can’t go on?
While you see it your way,
run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.
We can work it out.
We can work it out.

Think of what you’re saying,
you can get it wrong and still you think that it’s all right.
Think of what I’m saying,
we can work it out and get it straight or say good-night.
We can work it out.
We can work it out.
2.So sang the Beatles. I used to listen attentively to this song at this time, for it spoke to me of the love which was crumbling.
3.Desperately I pleaded with her at one time after we had had a conflict of angry words, and I begged her earnestly, beseeching her not to leave me.
“You won’t leave me, will you?” I asked.
To which she replied, “No,” comforting me, for I was exceedingly sorrowful.
I recall that the above incident took place at my house in the front room, while we were seated on the settee.

The Beatles’ song quoted (We Can Work It Out) gives no clue to the dating because it was released on 3 December 1965, more than one year previously.
