I know how sad this time of the year is for you and you have my deepest sympathy. For me, too, Pursas? is sad- it is a day one should be with ones family & no matter how much friend do it is never the same. - Don Benedick? of Shanghai, came up to Peking to play polo with us. He ? talked so much of dear Bob- it made him seem very near to us again. It was two years ago that I spent ten days with Bob in Shanghai. No one could have done ? for me than he did - We had ? wonderful talks. I think having helpful somewhat to give ? courage ? that difficult matrssimosial trouble he was having. I have ? ? it and have learned me great lesson - charity. So many things are difficult to understand until we have experienced them - there we get our lesson. - I know first how lonely your are & words can bring but better comfort. But there is a certain comfort in knowing that ? Bob's life was short, he left a real impression belived life? He left friends who can not forget him as a man - His living made all of us a little better. So few people can say that - so many just exist & in strident? nothing. Bob gave of himself inspiringly & that is why we still love him. - I hope that you can look forward to the New Year with courage and that time will soften the loss ? it never can take away its hurt.- Ever Yours - Roy Chapman Andrews."; PROVENANCE: from Swann Galleries' "Self Sale": in July 2004 SALE # B55, lot 159; CONDITION: The letter is in complete and in tack but separated at the folds; the paper has some rubbing & has some tiny nicks to edges, but overall in GOOD COND.
