My Dear Shaw:
I just want to send a word to wish you Christmas greetings
and all luck and happiness in the new year.
I wanted to thank you for the great kindness you have shown
me. I have not had occasion to be grateful often in my life but I
delight in the feeling and hug it to my heart. I am very glad to
think of Bernard Shaw as full of the milk of human kindness.
I believe too, that he is working for peace as I am, and there
is no other cause at this moment so worthy. I can hardly bear
even to think of the brutal war -- an insult to human reason. I
stretch hands across the sea to Shaw and thank him with all
my heart, and am proud to hail him as a great captain in the
liberation war of humanity.
