  • Letter from Virginia Durr to AHP, RE: Very much enjoyed meeting Peter and his family. After Durr's trip to England, it is tough to get back to Alabama, where the governor is running for President on a straight-out racist ticket. If AHP ever gets to England, Durr hopes that she can go to Cambridge to meet Joan Robinson, who impressed Durr more than any other woman she met in England. Also enjoyed meeting J. D. Bernal's present wife or mistress, Margot Heinemann. Both Robinson and Heinemann invited Durr to the Hague, but she does not have enough time or money to attend. Durr is glad that AHP is going, because she knows that it will go somewhere definite and not stay in the realm of broad statements. Asks AHP about the WILPF group that is going to Russia. Wonders if AHP might be able to visit Alabama on her way back from Europe. Asks about the building of the house at the Pauling ranch.
