Tsuicheu Cheu was a paediatrician at the First Shanghai Medical College, China.

4 April 1957

Dear Dr Tsuicheu Cheu,

You may or may not remember that I and my wife sat at the same table as yourself and your colleagues at the dinner of the International Paediatric Congress, Copenhagen, 1956. We enjoyed meeting you and I remember you very clearly. I think of you as a paediatrician with a warm personality and a depth of human understanding.

This letter is simply to convey greetings from my wife and myself and to let you know that I am sending you copies of two books that I have recently published. These are a collection of talks to mothers and other people concerned with the care of children. It will interest me to know whether you find that what I have said in these talks has any relevance in your country. I always like to think that human beings are the same everywhere, and indeed that is my fundamental belief. Probably the books will take some time to reach you but I hope this letter will find you in good health and happiness.

Yours very sincerely, (p. 218)
