On November 11th, 1931 Nikola tesla wrote a letter in response to Benjamin DeCasseres.
“Your letter of the 7th inst. found me engaged in very pressing work otherwise I would not have been so tardy in assuring you that I shall look with pleasure to a meeting at mutual convenience. I have no knowledge of Miss Clive beyond that conveyed by her frequent letters which reflects unusual intelligence as well as erratic character. She is strangely infatuated and lives in an illusion which I have never had the heart to shatter as it seems to make her happy.”
