Paris, March 17th, 1952.

Dear Robert,

Many thanks for your letter of March 12th. I was horrified to hear that you had had a motor accident even though it meant nothing more than a sprained ankle for Mildred.

It is good news that you are coming over here for the exhibition of Mexican Art.Art mexicain du précolombien à nos jours, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, May 9–July 20, 1952, organized by Fernando Gamboa. That means that you will arrive some time before July 20th. Of course Bill and I will see the show, but I also count on examining it carefully under your expert guidance.

I have no plans at present for a trip to New York. Admiral MillerHarold B. (“Min”) Miller (1903–1992), former Second World War admiral and president of the National Committee for a Free Europe. expects to come over here next month for several weeks, and my own plans can hardly take shape until his tour of inspection has been made.

We are all very well, and send you and Mildred much love. The BetbilsThe Bliss abbreviation for Bettine Tyler and William Royall Tyler. are taking the childrenRoyall Tyler (b. 1936) and Matilda Eve Tyler (b. 1939), the children of Bettine Tyler and William Royall Tyler. to Spain in April—or at any rate that is what Bill is planning to do.


R. T.

Thanks also for sending me Stuyve’sLewis Stuyvesant Chanler Jr. (1869–1963), president of the Knickerbocker Club between 1949 and 1960. letter—and for all the pains you took in that connection.
