Nov. 24, 1941
It was so nice to receive your birthday note, -- so far from home. I was delighted also, that you liked the book.
My trip through South America has been fascinating. It has been like discovering a new continent. If one is interested in growing things, one must be interested in these countries where all musical effort is just beginning.
You are well known here. I saw a great deal of Camargo Guarnieri, who is certainly one of the finest talents down here.
I also had time to complete my Piano Sonata, which I am anxious for you to hear.
I'll be back before Christmas if all goes well.
All my affection to you
