This letter regards Marie Seton's decision for Marjorie [Pilley] to send the sculpted head ('Marjorie') direct. She also relays the decision that Donald [Hesson, her then husband] will write to Mary Beattie Brady [executive director of the Harmon Foundation] with instructions to prepare sculptures and documents for transport and provides details of changed shipping dates. Seton comments on Moody's previous letter and her doubts about his past actions with regards to her and Sergei Eisenstein's relationship. Seton goes on to discuss at length Sergei Eisenstein and her relationship with Donald [Hesson, her then husband], including Donald's scepticism about religion and 'the system' [Gurdjieff system]. She mentions Moody's illness [Moody's was recovering from tuberculosis at this point] and Seton's regard for him as an artist.
