Description

This is regarding Marie Seton's dismay at Helene having left Marseilles for England and enquiring how she can help with permits. The letter also refers to a Wellesley exhibition arranged by Marjorie Weston (a friend of the Moody's in Paris who was the subject of the sculpture 'Marjorie' and who later married John Pilley), increased interest in Moody from the Boyer Gallery, and interest shown by Town and County magazine in Moody's poems. Marie Seton discusses the question of what Helene should do, whether she should go back to England or join Seton in America, and her own feelings about Moody's situation.
