March 1, 1950

Royall Tyler, Esquire

67 rue de Lille67 rue de Lille, the former Hôtel Duret, constructed in 1872–1874 by David de Pénanrun. Beginning in January 1949, the building served as the Parisian headquarters of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Paris VII.

Dear Royall,

This morning’s mail brings me your letter written the day before yesterday,See letter of February 27, 1950. and I cannot contain my disappointment at the news you send me of the U.S. membership on the Palestine Refugee Works Agency being given to someone else other than yourself. The same mail contained a letter from Dean Acheson,Dean Gooderham Acheson (1893–1971), an American statesman and lawyer who was secretary of state from 1949 to 1953. which I enclose.The whereabouts of this letter are unknown. Evidently politics has entered into this matter and, as I am of the opposite Party from that in powerHarry S. Truman (1884–1972), a Democrat, was the thirty-third president of the United States (1945–1953). (though I am in no way active in Party affairs), what I have to say does not carry much weight, I fear.

I cannot recall whether I wrote you that I asked Allen Dulles to write to the Secretary of State,Dean Gooderham Acheson (1893–1971), an American statesman and lawyer who was secretary of state from 1949 to 1953. which he promised to do, and I know that he will be disappointed that the post has not been given to you.

As soon as I have been able to pick up some information on the possibilities you mention in your letter, I shall send you further word.

In the meantime, this carries much love to you from us both.

Yours always,

[unsigned]
