Royall Tyler to Mildred Barnes Bliss, November 29, 1940

Geneva

29.XI.40

Dearest Mildred—I trust that long before this reaches you you’ll have had a cable saying I’m on my way. The object of this letter is to warn you that I’ve encouraged one Elliott Felkin,Arthur Elliott Felkin (1892–1968), a British diplomat who worked at the League of Nations and was a friend of Royall Tyler. who is already on the way over, to call on you. He is an old friend of mine, a perfect lamb, really a fire-side pet, and as queer as Dick’s hatband.Something peculiar, extraordinary, or incredible. I think he’ll amuse you. Bill knows him and will tell you this and that about him.

I had the invitation to the inauguration of the New Buildings.The library and gallery of the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection. Alas, that I couldn’t be there. It gave my heart strings a pull to see the Emperor roundelBZ.1937.23. reproduced in it. I liked the look of it.

Elisina isn’t coming with me on this brief trip. She is very well.

Love to you and Robert, and à bientôt, I hope—

Yrs

R. T.
