WHO WROTE THIS? Here is a heavily symbolic passage written in February, 1934. Who wrote it?

“King Albert of Belgium is killed. I should have foreseen this on Ash Wednesday, when Jack put the ashes in the Rose ashtray. Or before that, when I passed St Cyprian’s last night, and the dry leaves of the Bay tree shivered in the cold wind, and a queer figure passed me and slipped into the Church. Or when I found a tiny dead leaf outside the Pink room door.”

I asked Mary Jane who wrote it because I thought it was lovely. Mary Jane agreed.
