Description

In this letter Marie Seton mentions her work correcting galley proofs (possibly of the Eisenstein biography). She informs Moody that she has had no success getting an article placed in Ebony as the owner/editor is in Europe and tells him that she will try other publications. She describes her efforts to get passage to England in September and asks if Ronald and Helene can find cheap furnished accommodation for her. Seton expresses uncertainty about whether the Eisenstein biography will be published in America and comments on the American way of life, intolerance and demonstrations against non-conformism.
