Letter from RD to his family, relating to: his father's inability to travel to England; RD's alternative suggestion that his parents should go on holiday in America at his expense, to be joined by RD and Ella when filming is over. He comments that King Vidor and he work like cherubs together [on The citadel].

Holograph. The letter was written in the UK, but appears to have been forwarded to the Connecticut Donat family from another family member in Nova Scotia, and bears a Canadian stamp.
