In this letter Marie Seton refers to curtain fabric for the Moodys. She also tells them about her stay in a hotel in Old Delhi to allow her to write and get some perspective on New Delhi. Seton goes on to describe the crisis in India and the story behind Sheikh Abdullah [leader of the National Conference, Kashmir's largest political party]. She writes about Kashmiri politics and the relationship between Nehru and Abdullah. She also gives an account of a Sunday spent with Indira and Nehru and reflects on her first meal with them and her second meeting with Nehru, sharing her thoughts on her friendship with Nehru and Indira. She thanks Moody for introducing her to PD [the ideas of theosophist PD Ouspensky] and the assistance it has given her in dealing with the situation with Nehru and with Menon.
