August 27, 1949
This is to let you know, as I promised, that we have returned home safely, after a long and very interesting trip.
I am sorry that I did not have a chance to see you again, but I want to thank you once more for your reaction to THE FOUNTAINHEAD and for the wonderful column you wrote about it. It might please you to know that my friends, Janet Gaynor and Adrian, were so delighted with your column about the picture that they ordered several copies of it and are showing it to all their friends. You are the first and only one of the conservatives I know who has come out publicly in support of the picture, and I shall never be able to tell you how profoundly I appreciate it.
With love from both of us,
