January 29th., 1959.

Dear Fred:

Your letter makes me unhappy....but perhaps the situation of the moment will drive you into something with fewer ups-and-downs.  I 'phoned the College Art Association to find whether they had any suggestions - not mentioning names or locations, of course, as that might prove embarrassing to you - but the best they could come up with was that anyone interested should attend the current meeting in Cleveland and learn something from the gossip there.  Nevertheless I've continued to keep my ears open, and yesterday was told that one of the head man (but not the Director) was leaving the  Wadsworth Atheneum, 25 Atheneum Square No., Hartford, Conn. is leaving shortly for a museum in Montreal.  That's pretty near New York (Hartford, not Montreal)so you might look into it quickly.  The Director, should you wish to write him, is Mr. Charles Cunningham....but of course you cant tell him from what source the news reached you.

There Fred, cheer up, and if I hear of something else I'll again post you.  Meanwhile you might as well observe the reactions of the southerners to their plight, as surely it is easier to get a good job when you are in your position than to do so under even less pleasant circumstances.

We'll be thinkking of you and will pass along any news.

Best from Mr. Seligman and me,

Mrs. Theresa D. Parker
