To Lieutenant General John E. Hull1

December 20, 1946 Nanking, China

Dear Hull:

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,
