Dear Robert.

Just a line to tell you that George Digby,George Frederick Wingfield Digby (1911–1989), a classmate of William Royall Tyler at Harrow, was later keeper of the Department of Textiles at the Victoria and Albert Museum between 1947 and 1972. a first-cousin of Betsy’s and a great friend of Bill’s, is shortly planning to arrive in the US, from Jamaica, where he has been for his health for 3 years. Now well again.

You may remember George—he spent an evening with you once in Paris. He is on Eric Maclagan’s staff at the V & A Museum. He wants to see as many collections (esp. textiles) as he can in America, and he’d like to get some temporary job there if possible, to carry him for a couple of months, as he isn’t well off. He’s a very nice boy, & we’re very fond of him. I should be very grateful for any advice & help you can give him while he’s in the USA.

I hope Mildred has a letter I mailed to her—by air-post—on Feb. 20th. No news since then. I’m well, and enjoying work. Elisina is much better, & very busy with her oeuvre.See letter of April 7, 1942.

Much love to you both

Yrs
