    In this letter, Anna Louise Strong contacts her father (who is traveling in Australia) to update him on events at home in Seattle. After expressing concern about her father's safe arrival, she goes on to inform him about the continuing tensions surrounding the Seattle Union Record, her employer. Her editor, Harry E. B. Ault, remains embattled by the Seattle Central Labor Council's accusations, but she feels he will retain his position. For supporting Ault in this fight, Frank Turco has also been placed under suspicion and denounced by many as a traitor to the labor movement. Turco suspects the unrest is being promoted by the central committee of the Communist Party, and Strong agrees. She comments on her travel ambitions, and notes a friend's travel to the Soviet Union. She concludes by informing her father of having struck up a friendship with William Savery, a professor at the University of Washington, as well as describing some alterations she's made to her study. less
