Additional Details

Lawrence wrote this letter at the age of 60, while serving as a professor at the University of Washington. In full: "Thank you for your 'congradulations' on my appointment to the National Council on the Arts. Your card is greatly appreciated. I do hope to make some contribution to the Council--both for the community in general and the art community in particular. Gwen and I both continue to remember of that wonderful visit to your home during our last visit east. It too was greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future. In the meantime, keep well. Enjoy the holidays and love to both of you and Patty."
