From Leon Keyserling (Oldest son), 1943

 File — Box: 5, Folder: 10

Scope and Contents

Letters this year provide fewer details about Leon's career and focus more on a variety of family problems; counsels WK on financial matters and possible ways to retire (or at least slow down); advice on managing properties tied to the estate of Rosa Keyserling; advises his father not to send letters of advice or admonishment to Milton Schreiber re. his marital problems with Rosalyn; discusses Rosalyn's physical condition; suggests ways WK can liquidate parts of his estate, and improve investments; wonders where Herbert has been shipped in light of the "new offensive in the South Pacific"; informs WK that he requested his deferment [from military draft] be curtailed as he feels he should be in the war (also believes it would be a political "mis-step" not to enlist).
