Dear Mr. d'Allesio:
  Thank you for your considerate letter concerning China Relief. It was a terrible surprise to me but I am very happy to know your attitude and feelings, as well as those of the League, about the incident and I appreciate it very much.
  Under the circumstances there seems to be nothing you or I can do about it but I can't help voicing my feeling which I promptly did to the President of China War Relief, Mr. Herod. (Copy inclosed.)
  I hope that the League is going well and that the classes are filling up. I will be back and starting my class by the first of October. In the meantime if anything develops concerning this matter please let me know. In any case I will see you when I get back.
                   Sincerely yours,
