Letter 060

To Channing Pollock

July 7, 1941

Mr. Channing Pollock
Shoreham, Long Island
New York

Dear Mr. Pollock:

Thank you for the copy of your letter to Mr. Emery, which I received today. I was sorry to hear that Mr. Emery has been puzzled by my silence, but the reason was precisely what you stated in your letter—the fact that I have had nothing to report.

I have been waiting from day to day to hear from Mr. Gall—but have not heard from him up to the present moment. I was also waiting for your next visit to New York and for our planned luncheon with Mr. Gall—I intended to communicate with him upon hearing from you.

I got in touch with Miss Gloria Swanson and I am to see her soon, probably this week. She is interested in our cause and could be very helpful. This is all the news I have to report for the present. I am waiting for Mr. Emery—and I am really waiting for his instructions as to our next steps in securing financial backing.

I do hope that you will be able to come to New York soon and I am looking forward to seeing you. I must reproach you for just one sentence in your letter to Mr. Emery—the one about “Miss Rand is either disgusted with my inertia or . . .” You really should know better than that. After all the time and effort you have put into our organization, I hope you are not really doubting my appreciation.

With best regards,

Sincerely yours,
