Editor’s Note
6 After Dolby's first interview with Forster, who made clear his hostility to the whole plan, he sent CD the following telegram: "I can make nothing of Forster; he is utterly unreasonable and impracticable. Come down here and stay at my house, and we will tackle him together" (Dolby, CD as I Knew him, p. 138).
