Thank you for your letter, and for the Durranty [sic - Duranty] cutting. He just
writes what they tell him to. At the same time, since his message refers to the
new harvest I can’t challenge him on first hand knowledge. That is to say, I
know and you know that his description of things in the Caucasus is untrue; but
he can always retort, “ You haven’t seen and I have.”
One idea I had, however. If I could get hold of specimens of his messages
during, say, the last year, I believe I could write an amusing article on
Durranty as a foreign correspondent that a paper like TRUTH might publish, and
that might do some good. I’d want about fifteen to twenty specimens spread
over the year; even going back earlier. Do you happen to have, or know how I
might get hold of, such specimens of his messages.
Bryn has been staying here, and I find him charming as ever.
