Dear Robert.

Many thanks for your cable. I’ve written accordingly to V., and will let you know what happens.

I hope to hear from you soon. Please let me know whether you are interested in the objects mentioned in my 1 March letter, p. 3 first paragraph.The paragraph that begins “He tells me that . . . ”

Bill & Betsy are staying for the moment with Edith. There are various possibilities where a job for Bill is concerned, & I hope soon to be able to give you some news on the subject. Dean JayNelson Dean Jay (1883–1972), an American banker with J. P. Morgan & Co. and the Paris firm of Morgan & Cie. was very kind to Bill, & offered to give him a letter to Morgans in London, several partners of which I also know. But, between you & me, that house is so filled up with young sons & nephews & cousins of the partners that outsiders have extremely little chance there, and it’s not a very active concern. I think Bill would have a better chance elsewhere. Bill is beginning to chafe a bit at not being at work, but he’s very well, & I hope something will take shape soon for him.

As for matters over here, things are much as they were when I last wrote you a tome, except that the effect of British rearmament is being more & more felt in regions where it had been assumed that Gt. B. had decided not to rearm. I still think there isn’t going to be a bust-up yet awhile, bad though things may look at times.

Elisina & I send you both our love—

Yrs

R. T.
