I was sorry to see so little of you in New York- intending to see you if I saw no one else. And the stupidity of wandering around in the Lehigh Starret building while you were waiting for me at 41 west 12th street rises to plague me still. Dutchy and I saw something of Catherine Bauer in New York. The Guggenheim has asked me for a recommendation for the new work she wants to do and I my best- but wrote her what I thought of her thesis. You know what I must think about that. Enclosed is a copy of what I think about it for your files if you care for it. Wright would later accept the contract to build the Guggenheim three years later in 1943, Hilla Rebay, the curator stated to Wright that he wanted to build, "A temple of spirit, a monument!” Matted and framed.
