Description

Marie Seton opens this letter with a reference to the situation in Goa (Goa was annexed by India in 1961). She informs Moody that his 'Three Heads' is missing from mantelpiece in the Prime Minister's house and has been replaced by Indira Gandhi with a Japanese stone eagle and four Eskimo carvings. She comments on the Goa situation and the effect on Nehru and Indira Gandhi and also writes about poor Afro-Indian relations. Seton concludes the letter by asking Ronald to find out about Essie and Paul Robeson's health.
