This is a letter written by Walter Schuckman to Frank Loeb, written on July 7, 1945 at the Choir House in the Dean's Court in London. In the letter, he mentions people that have asked about Frank and mentions some by name, such as the Minters. Walter says that it was because of the Minters' cousin, W.K.S. Minter, that he (Walter) "got out of the Nazi-hands without harm." He updates Frank about the Minter family and some other mutual acquaintances and says that he stayed with several people, including the Minters, once he got back from the war. He then updates Frank about the state of London since the war and describes the destruction. He says "On the whole, I think you would be shocked if you saw London now. It looks rather shaken. But when you got used to the looks you find that it is really still very much the same. Only, I think, on the whole people have become a little more kind to one another. I am glad to be back, anyway. All the best. Yours as ever, Walther."
