Notes, topics or text 

Gollancz is glad to see BR's second letter to The Times. He offers information on the condition of Germans inside Czechoslovakia "(and, no doubt, inside Poland)". He encloses [not present] his letter that appeared in the Manchester Guardian in "mutilated form, with a quotation from Gedye cut out." Gollancz updates BR on all major developments including the results of the deputation with the "irritable" Prime Minister [on Oct. 27], the debate with Ben Smith, and a new deputation to Ben Smith that Gollancz hopes BR will attend. He mentions that he is arranging an all-party meeting for the Albert Hall on Nov. 26 to address the points of the Conway Hall meeting, and hopes BR and Patricia Russell will be on the platform. Gollancz encloses a memo from Roy Walker [not present], and a Reuter despatch [not present] concerning an alleged agreement between the governments to continue German deportations.
