Marie Seton starts this letter with a description of the room where she is staying. She moves on to discuss the economic crisis in India, the impact of American influence and efforts to isolate India, the social exclusion of colonial minded Westerners, and problems caused by the economic crisis including long working hours for all. Finally she writes about Menon, his condition, his loneliness and the inner conflict instigated by his having been given a job for which he was not suited. She tells Moody of her and Indira Gandhi's efforts to help Menon.
