"The crime of Lese Majeste which put Mrs. Russell in a tantrum last Thursday afternoon was committed solely by me." "When Mr. Cantrell informed me that Mrs. Russell was waiting outside, I told him that you were engaged in an interview to which you had agreed and that I had no right to interrupt it. A few minutes after Mr. Cantrell delivered the message, Mrs. Russell catapulted into the hall and bristling all over, said in a sharp, commanding tone, 'Where is Mr. Russell'." She addressed this question to Miss Mullen, secretary of the Barnes Foundation and one of its five trustees.
Across the top of this letter is typed: "Delivered by hand on Sunday, March 2, 1941. Copy also marked 'confidential' sent to Mr. McCardle with request that he 'return to sender by hand on Sunday, March 2, 1941'." Written in the margin is the note: "This letter destroyed—see letter of 3/3/41" (record 121571).
