Strachan was given Marini's contact details by Henry Moore, whose best wishes he passes on to the Italian sculptor; the correspondence primarily relates to the inclusion of Marini's work in Strachan's Towards sculpture (1976); Strachan also refers to a meeting with Claude, the son of French illustrator and sculptor Henri Laurens.
