In this letter Marie Seton writes about fabric for a divan and her work on finishing her book. She then describes the pressures surrounding Indira Gandhi and the effect on her. She goes on to talk of the repeated negative comments about Menon in the American press and the impact of this on him, which Seton believes is similar to what both Sergei [Eisenstein] and Paul [Robeson] faced. Seton discusses what her own position with regard to this and the difficulty of helping Menon. She also describes Indira's attitude to the situation with Menon and Seton's belief that the only solution for Menon is to cut himself loose from everyone and seek his 'karma yogin [sic] being'. Seton ends the letter telling Moody that she believes that Nehru died when he was ready.
