Letter from Har Dayal to Van Wyck Brooks (January 9, 1939)

Letter from Har Dayal to Van Wyck Brooks in Connecticut dated January 9, 1939, in which Dayal thanks Brooks and his wife for their generous hospitality. An interesting feature of the letter is the discrepancy between the address on the letter -- 701 Park Manor Aps, 40th St. & Girard Ave, Phila (Pa) -- and the postmark and stamp on the letter, which appears to be from Sweden. The 701 Park Manor address was a permanent address that Dayal used several times.
