This letter mainly relates to Menon and the appalling situation facing him in Bombay which Seton describes as 'bear baiting'. She writes of the enmity surrounding him, including that of Indira Ghandi's aunt, and Nehru's own frustration with Menon. She describes Menon's intellectual arrogance and his unsuitability for the post he was given (Minister of Defence). She tells Moody that Nehru is in a very difficult position regarding Menon and how to deal with him. There is also a reference to getting money from the bank for Indira.
