Just a word, dearest Mildred, to tell you I arrived safely.

I’ve told Allen D. definitively that I accept his proposal.Royall Tyler had taken the position of European representative of the National Committee for a Free Europe (NCFE), a private American anti-Communist organization founded in 1949 by the U.S. Department of State and organized by Allen Dulles, with whom Tyler also helped found the Free Europe College in Strasbourg, France. Details appear O.K.; and such a relief to have a human being to deal with, instead of Bureaucracy.

Please tell Robert that the Harvard Un. Press bookPossibly Dumbarton Oaks Papers 5 (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1950). has arrived, and that I’m very grateful for it.

Bless both of you for all your kindness and welcome, and the good hours you gave me in Washington.

I’ll report on arrival over there.

Much love to you


R. T.
