In this letter Marie Seton informs Helene Moody that 'The Studio' will use her article on Ronald and that she has asked Marjorie [Pilley] to send a head [the portrait mask 'Marjorie'] direct. She tells Helen about their travel plans on the 'Batory' and arrangements for handing over works from the Harmon Foundation in Southampton. Seton asks Helene to ask Ronald to explain 'recurrence' to her [Marie]--this could refer to an aspect of Gurdjieff's or Ouspensky's teachings which Seton and Moody both followed.
Most of the letter relates to the end of Seton's relationship with Sergei Eisenstein and her regret at what happened to him afterwards. She also refers to her relationship with Donald [Hesson, her then husband] and Moody and Moody's role in preventing her from returning to Russia in 1935 and 1936.
