Abstract

[unusually personal criticism] My Dear Mr. Johnson:-- Yours of 4, 16, to hand.#You tell me that I "said all these things in refusing to go see him."#Do you not recollect that when you wrote to him asking for an interview that he declined it?#Do you know of any instance since his marriage that he has ever invited me to go and see him?#You certainly know that he sent me no invitations to the wedding or cards afterwards.#Unless you can point to some instance in which after an invitation was sought by me one has ever been extended or an opportunity afforded your criticism all falls to the ground.#I have not sought to get you to act as a spokesman, but what I did seek was to know what money he needed at this time, believing that if the thing was properly handled by you or his old secretary that there was a solution that would relieve you both, but since you object to any further correspondence on the question, I shall certainly not renew it.
