HALL (Sir William Reginald, 1870-1943, Admiral in the Royal Navy, Director of Naval Intelligence in the First World War, The Dreadnought Project)

Fine Typed Letter Signed to "My dear Arturio" thanking him for a "book. I have not read it so it is a great treat to come. I am sending you a book but have not decided yet which one. I am sending to [sic] a line to Ivy Lethbridge as you suggest; I am awfully sorry for her. All very quiet here and life slips by without one seeming to do anything in particular. Faith seems to enjoy her life. She spent the last week in Town with an old friend and is off again on Friday ... Ess is very fit and hard at work planting bulbs ... Are you a coming here for a few days on your way back from Treniffle? I do think it would be good for you and Goda. The exposure of the Red tactics with the Hunger marchers will harden public opinion in favour of doing something to stop these demonstrations; it is sheer folly to allow London to be capsized by these ruffians and insurances become almost compulsory with many people who otherwise would not have to insure. I can't complain of course being in that trade! There seems little doubt but that Roosevelt will be the new President in America; I heard from Morgans intelligence man the other day. They seem to think that, though the election will not be popular with big business, affairs will settle down after a few months. The amazing thing to my mind is that Roosevelt should want to be President seeing that he is partially paralysed; It kills even a wholly sound man and R ought to last only a short time if he does his job ... if he is really wise, he will have a coalition cabinet and rake in some of the best of the Republicans. A National Government covers a multitude of sins as we know over here ...", 2 sides 4to., Hawk's Lease, Lyndhurst headed paper, 1st November
