1936 spring HARLEM ... Dr John Ray R. and LENNIE his young brother :

DUKE ELLLINGTON  - musician composer poet humanist ...

“ ... do you remember visiting Harlem ... with an American Duke ...

We could not go the appointed day because they had a Feast on, a celebrating for a birth-day ... but two days later we visit ... it can be tricky there ... but the American Duke held your hand & introduced you to several people & families,  & we followed on ... You curtsied to very old black ladies & all was peaceful ... you spoke to a child who said she liked your pleated skirt & you replied yes it was comfortable even for flying with Lennie but you did not like reds and dark mauves but preferred clothes of green or blue - the two of you were talking earnestly - heads together, nodding away :  You said you liked the colours blue & green best - blue because it was the sky very often and greens were the leaves on the trees and sometimes the seas ... You said we have to fly about to look after everybody in the schools and the hospitals and all the places Aunt Margareth and TIGGY set up to look after people around the world 60 and 70 years ago =  Visit a very great success ! ” 


 A little part of the Estate runs through Harlem, from the middle of the last century (c 1850s)  - we had a Hall where they could play games and make music ... and next the Hall a place where really needy people could stay ... and ladies who had fallen on hard  times ... It was amazing what a small child gathers from its family and friends ... No, we were not black but we had a Berber grandma a long time ago and some Palestine grannies ... and the colour fades in the children when they marry very white people ... You spoke on the two boys you had just heard play piano & given one a prize for the best as your ballerina Grannie Jean judged him best ... but Telonius had to be told by his uncle to do his piano practice ... Lennie had lived in Argentina when he was very small and he had learned his piano there ...


We may be able to make a little scholar there ... the American Duke will be in touch ...


LENNIE talking with others = “ It was difficult when they began to come back from the War ... I went in with Sammy to see what might be done - we got another piece going in safety within the Estate ...”   


“ ... (1960 :  Report older people than FJR,LIR & me) We did not know that great Tour Nord-Sud that Jimmie Jong was following us until we got to Bog ... but you had said since Paris that you had seen “ the other one ... that one ... & that he sometimes pulled on a wig or a false moustache ... but you had no name for him ... It was the madness over the two old people with the APPLE CART outside the GROTE HOME at Bogatar ... then the Police got out to look for him ...

 DO YOU KNOW WHAT A ROUND ROBIN IS ?  They send a note telegram, telephone, letter, to those who employ them in this FRAUD – this was the role of JIM when he offered to follow you and your families when it was learned you had lawfully left Great Britain October 1935 & that an older man of the SEA of a high position was relieved to hear of this – he hoped you would not return but perhaps make another home in New Zealand or Argentina the land of your grandmother JEAN – Mr little Jim who works for others also of moonlit Scotland kept them all posted and never lacked an expensive bed where he might use official facilities for free :   sometimes certain lordly ones claiming all of you would travel to great cities & hear the reports about the whereabouts of the Estate there :  they were outside the Law, all civilized behaviour, and should have been apprehended for criminal activities : ”
