Frank's part of the letter contains a note about Allen and Unwin: "I have told Allen and Unwin to send you page proofs, and communicated the whole of your message to them." (This concerns Roads to Freedom; see record 46924 re indexing it.) Frank says "Miss Rinder's messages have not arrived yet."The typed page on the verso of the sheet with Frank's portion and Elizabeth's must be Miss Rinder's -- it was she whose job it was to collect messages, and the writer (referred to only as "I" and "me") is acquainted with the many persons whose messages follow.
