July 10, 1947

Monsieur Royal [sic] Tyler

Hotel Richemond,

Geneva, Switzerland.

Dear Royal [sic]:

Mildred and I are delighted to learn that you are going to be connected with the World Bank,The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), established in 1944, became operational in 1946 as the original institution of the World Bank Group. It was a cooperative organization of 188 member nations that originally promoted sustainable development and reconstruction to nations devastated by the Second World War. See letter of June 28, 1947. especially as it will mean periodical trips to Washington. Nothing could have pleased us more than to know that we shall occasionally be seeing you, instead of being subjected to the long intervals between our meetings.

For various reasons, we have not yet made out our itinerary in Europe, but just as soon as I know whether we are going to land in France or in London I shall notify you. In any event, we sail on the “Mauretania”RMS Mauretania, a passenger ocean liner launched in 1938 and owned by the Cunard White Star company. August 22nd, and I think there is no question but what our plans will take us to Istambul [sic] some time in the latter part of October. Please, oh please, do arrange matters so that you can go with us. I think we shall have to cut out the Cairo trip, but we can put in a day or two at Athens in exchange.

Much love to you both.

Yours ever,

[unsigned]
