Virginia Woolf’s cook brought the news in January 1923 that Katherine Mansfield had died.

Nelly said in her sensational way at breakfast on Friday, ‘Mrs. Murry’s dead! It says so in the paper!’ At that, one feels what? A shock of relief? A rival the less? Then confusion at feeling so little then, gradually, blankness and disappointment; then a depression which I could not rouse myself from all that day. Katherine wont read it. Katherine’s my rival no longer.
