The it. Pleasant news warmer these Days by Georg e. Sukolsky More orbiter dicta Thomas g. Dill of Middleport Massac Huset to writes evidently you had rather Fry than to speak to a russian. I have no abjection to your trying if that is your desire but i do object to your trying to get me Fried with sorry i do not want to Fry or tie tried any More Titan brother i Jill does but the difference Between us is that i do not wish to see him Fried. It would be an awful sight Dills trouble is that he Bein vex whatever Khrushchev tells him because he does not know Khrushchev has never seen him and cannot vote for or against him he does not have the Vinic sentiments concerning Eisenhower or Dulles also he must be a very self entered person he says have no reason to believe that the russians have any intention or desire to harm me. And i have no intention or desire to harm of course to n degree that us Correct they probably never heard of Dill of Middle Boro Massachusetts but they have heard of the United states of America. In fact. Khrushchev said that he will Bury us which is just a manner of speaking. Soviet Russia is arming for War and they fan Only be arming the Way they Are doing it to make War on the United states because there is nobody else that Sie to make War upon. Dill says that he has never seen Khrushchev a threats. I am sorry that Dills Reading is so Light and so Dull for Khrushchev threats Are very amusing at times exhibit a inc a deep sense of humor and a capacity to be Nasty while appearing to be Gay. Dill asks a a you write that Khrushchev threatens the United states in t a bonding language. I have never seen any of these threats but what if he does0 if he had surrounded of with military bases As we have surrounded his country i would be More apprehensive you Don t Trust j the russians Well they have never invaded this country As we invaded curiously enough we never invaded soviet Russia despite the supposition that the siberian expedition was an invasion of Russia by the United states. I happen to have been in Siberia and Manchuria during 1918 and 1919 and was quite familiar with All the phases of that invasion. Even historians sometimes miss the overtones of a Public event and Deal Only with the cold words of a document.
