Marie Seton opens this letter by writing about fabric. She goes on to discuss the crisis in India and Nehru’s handling of it and the opposition Nehru is experiencing. She refers to her unorthodox cousin/godmother and her connection with the Nehru family. Seton also writes about Menon’s opposition to Nehru and an awkward encounter with Menon and subsequent phone call to him. This is followed by a lengthy discourse on Menon, his behaviour and what Seton views as his Messiah complex. The letter concludes with a brief reference to Moody’s ‚Savacou‘ and the phoenix-like quality of India.

The beginning of this letter is missing. In this letter Marie Seton describes Menon’s relationship with Nehru and the conflicts within himself crystallised by Nehru’s death. She also refers to the behind the scene fights which took place in the presence of Nehru’s corpse and Menon’s reaction to the fights. She shares further thoughts about Menon and the lack of preparations for Nehru’s death (including the absence of a death mask) due to lack of warnings.
