--2--M.take. I think you must feel, as I do, that a child of ours has been mutilated.Please do not say anything about my relations to the Conference; some day it will all come out. I said nothing at Washington publicly and very little privately about it as I did not wish to mar the success of the Conference by any discordant or personal note.I am sorry to hear that you have any family reasons for anxiety.With undiminished regard, Faithfully yours,R U Johnson 04198
