S. Lester's letter addressed to F.P. Walters in Oxford on F.P. Walters' and the United States' optimism as to the future of international organisations; S. Lester's pessimism trying to solve financial problems and to keep the League of Nations remnants, affected by war measures, in activity; A. Loveday's satisfaction with the removal of his Section to the USA, the hope of the possible move of the Opium Section to the USA, the fact that just before his resignation J. Avenol planned to go to Versailles with the Marshal Pétain; news on various colleagues, because of the precarious situation of the League of Nations A. Loveday would be the rallying point.
Presumably the report on the work of the League of Nations during the war; F. Walters referred to the determination to make the United Nations as separate as possible from all memory of the League of Nations.
