Description

In this letter Marie Seton mentions the appearance of O's [Ouspensky's] book in the ordinary book lists and her purchase of a copy. She suggests that Moody might get his article on 'The Artist' accepted by 'Transformation' and provides details of this magazine's contributors and editors. She expresses a hope that she might get an article on Ronald in 'Magazine of Art' and refers to Donald's work on his book. She also mentions her progress in writing new articles and getting old ones published and her efforts to 'humanize' and educate Americans. The letter includes general comments on conditions, prices, anti-communism, fears of atomic war, and attitudes of Marxists in America.
