Dear Clem & Jenny,
Wow! not what I expected-the austerity program is certanlly over. Its the most sophisticated place I've ever been. The English bring all the best of the world here. Although, the show at the Tate is without (but a very few pictures) the worst I've ever seen. Both Tony and I look bad. One picture of mine stuck in on an end & Tony's sculpture crammed in a space that murders it. Evan D. Smith looks week and I know the pieces are strong. Kazmins [[Kasmin's ?]] Newman comes off Best the other two Newmans stink (late ones) Bad Pollack & so on. Miss you very much and I'm learning alot. 
Love Ken
