Document Type Correspondence
Content Description He says it might be wise for the mission to withdraw from Turkey because it is so "unsettled." He wonders whether the converts are sincere or only interested in financial gain. He wants Ed to pick a career. His plans have been impeded by lack of time and his "buttinskyness." He thinks he will soon leave for the states and is interested in real estate. He has paid close attention to hygiene and stuck to a diet of cereals, fruits, and vegetables.
