Letter from Vanessa Bell to Julian Bell

In this letter to her son Julian in China, Vanessa expresses her concern for his safety. Civil war in China had created an atmosphere of instability and Japanese colonial incursions into China in the early 1930's added to the sense of danger. The letter also describes her judging of an art exhibition, and goes on to discusses reactions to the London International Surrealist Exhibition which opened in June 1936 at the New Burlington Galleries.
