Box 43
A27. THE PAWN OF FATE; a novel
[Written 1918].
Mottled green paper cover with cloth spine.
[178 p], holograph notebook.
"Preface: In the small sketch of life in a military hospital in France which serves as part of the background to the heroine of this story, many will probably think that they recognise themselves. It is a well-known fact that in the medical and nursing professions a conformity to type exists which is equalled by that of no other vocation in life. Active service conditions tend to emphasize rather than detract from this conformity. For the majority of readers this explanation will doubtless be sufficient. For the rest, I can only say, that if any feel the cap fits, by all means let them wear it."

A28. FOLLY'S VINEYARD, a novel. [Title changed from The Pawn Of Fate].
[1918]
[191 p], annotated carbon-typescript.
Includes eight [8], loose sheets of rough summaries of the Prologue, chapter summaries and the Introduction.

[546 p], annotated typescript.
"(Typescript. Predecessor to Testament of Youth.) Consists of extracts from my 1913-1916 diaries (with names changed), submitted for an autobiography competition about 1924, which it did not win. Naive, amusing, pathetic; hence worth keeping, and possibly, when far enough back in history, worth publishing." Vera Brittain.
An Extract from the Foreword:
"Until a very few months ago, no eyes but my own had seen the diary which is here reproduced, and even my own had not seen it for several years. These intimate, undisciplined outpourings were forced from my immaturity by the urgent need of self-expression. I have decided to publish them now because I have come to believe that our need for understanding, one of another, is at least equally urgent."
