Different Folks

Earl Russell (i.e. Bertrand Russell the philosopher) and Lord Russell of

Liverpool (prominent prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials) got fed up with

getting each other’s mail, and composed a famous joint letter to the London

Mexican Secretary of State, and myself, are two different people. There is

no resemblance whatsoever. Neither of us is the other.
