To Lieutenant General John E. Hull1
December 20, 1946 Nanking, China
The radio has just come from Mrs. Marshall telling me how delightfully she is situated and how much you have done for her convenience and pleasure. I am very grateful. Nothing you could do for me could possibly mean as much as this kindness of yours to Mrs. Marshall.
I appreciated especially your invitation for Mrs. Marshall to stay with you and I know she has thanked you personally.
I can only hope that I might, by chance, have the opportunity to join her en route to Washington, but with a stopover in Honolulu. However, my affairs continue with equal uncertainty from day to day. Faithfully yours,
