Discusses Beatrix's inability to visit Dumbarton Oaks before her travel to California. Max Farrand is receiving medical treatment and Beatrix Farrand does not want to leave him. Her hand had a "violent and neglected attack of gout" due to overworking and an old injury. Beatrix Farrand reports it will probably take weeks for the problem to resolve.
Beatrix Farrand expresses her apologies to John Thacher and James Bryce that she is "failing them and D.O." by not being there.
"MaxTrix [Max and Beatrix Farrand] send their very best to their dear Milrob [Mildred and Robert Bliss]."
