Sept 17 1953
Many thanks for sending both the telegram and the letter of introduction. I am going to see the director of the Fonds tomorrow and hope that his interest in a translation can be aroused.
I had a nice drive to Oaxaca and Puebla, etc. To-morrow is the concert with the Sinfónica. They are still in pretty good condition, but without a permanent conductor I am afraid it is certain they will deteriorate. Roy's Third has some impossible string writing! Rien a faire!
If you decide to publish the "Soli" with the Arrow Press send me a corrected copy ready for the printer. I am sure Virgil and Marc will agree to publish the work with funds that we now have.
I leave Sunday night by plane.
