His attitude towards Gavronsky was such that I am wondering whether you should not call him up and tell him that I have seen Wolff[[strikethrough]]f[[/strikethrough]] in New York and that upon his question as to what you and I had discussed with Gavronsky, I told him "just generalities", as our purpose had been to meet the Prince and we had thus been very disappointed at not being able to see him in Switzerland and my feeling was (I told the Prince) that we had just wasted our time.

I am suggesting this telephone call as I am afraid Wolff may turn Gavronsky against us by claiming that I gave him, Wolff, the impression that our conversation with Gavronsky had had a confidential character - in other words we had had talks behind Wolff's back.

Now, as to the ultimate results of my conversation with Wolff, just let me say that for the time being I remain just as skeptical as before, but nevertheless we have made a step forward insofar that I have met the man.

I am anxiously awaiting your news re Delft and other matters, and with kind thoughts,

John J. Cunningham, Esq.      Yours,
