Description

In this letter Marie Seton writes about Jagdish Kapur's possible visit to London and asks if Moody will be there to meet him. She updates Moody on her progress with her biography of Satyajit Ray and asks if Moody will sculpt a head of Ray. She tells Moody about a letter from Essie (Robeson) regarding Paul having had two breakdowns. She also describes the situation between Nehru and Menon whose elder sister is dying of cancer. She raises the question of whether Menon should have a second operation, as the blood clot in his skull had not been completely removed the first time.
