Description

This letter discusses a meeting with Mary Beattie Brady the Assistant Director of the Harmon Foundation, New York] about the return of Moody's work and Brady's hope to sell 'Midonz' for $1500. Seton also relates a rumour that O's [Ouspensky] last wish was for a Roman Catholic mass to be said in New York and describes her ensuing thoughts on self responsibility. Seton goes on to comment on European expatriates in America and her efforts to get news from Europe and disseminate it. Seton tells Moody that she and Donald [Hesson, her then husband] avoid 'top people' when in Europe and writes that Donald is about to start a book.
