Notes, topics or text 

Blake thanks Peter for her letter that arrived 1946/09/20. He is pleased to hear that Silkin has hired her and recommends Henry Churchill's book on town planning. He also suggests she visit Wells Coats, an architect in London, that Blake knows.

The recent backing of the Oder-Neisse boundary by the Russians has given the occupiers some more breathing room. Blake feels that Byrnes' speech in Stuttgart is a good start against the Russians and that the US finally has a Russian policy in place. What they need now is a German policy. He sees the State Department as using Germany only as a means against the Russians, but doing nothing to deal with Nazism or fill the vacuum left by Hitler's defeat.

Blake sends his love to everyone and hopes BR's broken toe mends.
