Description
The beginning of this letter is missing.

In this letter Marie Seton describes Menon's relationship with Nehru and the conflicts within himself crystallised by Nehru's death.

She shares further thoughts about Menon and the lack of preparations for Nehru's death (including the absence of a death mask) due to lack of warnings.
