I first met John M. Synge at the room of a mutual friend,1 up two pairs of stairs, in an old house in Bloomsbury, on a Monday night of January, 1903.2 When I entered the room, he was sitting in a rush-bottomed chair, talking to a young man just down from Oxford. My host introduced me, with the remark that he wanted us to know each other.
