[We have much pleasure in publishing in the Quarterly a remarkable portrait study of Rabindranath by a young sculptress of Latvia in the Soviet Union. Latvia is one of the two states within the Soviet Union, Lithuania and Latvia, which form the home-lands of two sister-nations, the Lithuanians and the Letts or Latvians, who are the two surviving sections of the ancient Baits. The Baits arc an important branch of the Indo-European people of whom the Iranians and the Aryans of India form another branch, along with the other brandies, viz. the Armenians, the ancient Greeks, the Italic peoples, the Slavs, the Celts and the Teutons or Germanic peoples, and the ancient Tokharians of Central Asia and the Hittites of ancient Asia Minor.
