Description

This letter includes Marie Seton's response to poetry which Ronald Moody had sent to her, arrangements for sending money to Marseilles, attempts to arrange an exhibition in Boston for Moody, and possible Boyer Gallery interest in him. Marie Seton also describes her reaction to civilian war activity and discusses her appreciation of her background and a new sense of sureness within herself. There are references to arrangements for the release of her Eisenstein film 'Time in the Sun' (a compilation of material Eisenstein shot in Mexico).
