"Your Xmas letter with nice photograph, which was to have taken five days by air, reached me yesterday, having taken exactly a month. It is curious that I had just had a very vivid dream about you. ... Your photograph makes you look very sad. I have been thinking a great deal about you: hoping you are as safe as one can be in these days, and wondering how you fill your time in the Arctic winter. I hear sometimes from Gilbert Murray. Since I wrote to you last I have had three months at Harvard giving the William James Lectures. Now I have this five years' job. ... We have taken a 200-year old farm house in lovely hilly wooded country, about 25 miles from Philadelphia. ... I have grown more and more interested in history, especially of ideas. At last I am making use of Burnet in my work. I have no plans for after the war—I do not dare to think of such a time.
Write again soon and give me your news...."
