Nov. 12th 1935

Dearest Milrob.

Those wonderful days at Dumbarton Oaks are one of the great experiences of my life, in which the affectionate kindness and loving solicitude with which you have surrounded me casts a further glow on the recollection of the beautiful world you have created round you. I thank you for everything, with all my heart. I see why Royall said to me that he would not attempt to describe the Oaks, because I could only realize its quality when I saw it myself. I am glad that this joy has been given me.

I have met, thanks to you, so many interesting people, and realized another aspect of this great country which it is well to bear in mind, when so many foreign writers are inclined to accept the more superficial and striking aspect as the real one.

Mildred is feeling and looking better for his visit to you. We talked of you all the way back—as far as Newark.

I am so happy to know that I shall catch a glimpse of you in London, and perhaps that we may possibly realize the hope of spending Christmas with you in Venice? Or is it too bright a dream?

Dearest Mildred, dearest Robert,—so many more thanks than I can express—

Always and most devotedly yours,

Elisina
