Dear Bonnie, I hope this made it in one piece. This is part of what I sent to the Ferguson grant—it is one of only two prints that were really good. Stains again. Sometimes I don't know. (I'm watching Mary Hartman, etc.—the most depressing show ever conceived.) I think I'm going to Colorado Springs for the 4th though I could think of a dozen places or people I'd rather be with— all of which are highly improbable.—I finally got all moved—I really can't wait to move to Seattle—no kidding a place of my own again. I'm buying a bumper so I can hitch a trailer. Exciting, huh? Let me know what you're up to. Love, Marshall

Dear Bonnie: CONGRATULATIONS on your post card debut. Looks pretty good to me. Yeah, Susan Mogul (named after the skiing obstacle?) was very pleasant in conveying your greetings. I have about 3 weeks to go on my very last paper. Then I sit down for a four month grind in preparation for a 1 1/2 hour oral exam. (Mind-blower.) After that I'm certified as qualified to attempt, possibly, to write a dissertation. Did you know that [Robert] Sobieszek is now a co-student of mine? Behind me in the program, even. Did I tell you now, I'm, alas, once again a bachelor? But my work is going better than in years. Love, Pete. [P.S. John Sz. [Szarkowski] admired your wrapped finder photo on my wall!] (a beauty of a show)

Rochester-by-the-sea July 26 [text from Peter] Bet you never made any 3-D cards! Hope your summer of freedom is fun. I missed you when I was in NYC—where I totally muffed my lengthly interview w/MOMA—though still haven't received final word. Best, Peter [text from Bonnie] David—When one is writing on the ocean it gets a little squiggly. In a week I am leaving for Montana & Colo. What have you been doing? On Sat. we are going to hear Benny Goodman. xo Bonnie

2 Oct 78 Wow! Hope you came through the big crash without damage. Judy tells me it was in your vicinity. Nothing so spectacular going on here—the normal work. Pretty soon, though, I'll hand in my last paper. Believe it? Love, Peter

8 April 77 NYC [In case you didn't guess, this pic is about love] Dear Bonnie—You made it into Light Gallery sooner than you thought; as a subject in a Dave Freund picture (you're seen mostly from behind—but unmistakably you—and a girl cut in half on a porch on the right). The show is not bad—that VERY delicate sensibility; my only objection is that technically they're a little sloppy: fuzzy & grainy which is bad for all the delicate stuff. But still pretty good. Dave seems happy & we had a nice talk at the openning [sic], and that Harold [Jones] produced some sort of elegant demonstration. Does the show look good? Nice frames? The [Robert] Rauschenberg show here is marvelous—what's terrific is that he was willing to try anything. Jonnie & Susan, back from England, send love. P.

18 March 77 Bonita—I've been meaning to send you this card for months, and to promise that if you and Marshall ever make it to NYC, I'll take you here for dinner. (It's open 24 hrs.) Rudi Kicken is here now on a business trip, and will be out in your neck of the woods in a few weeks. [He intends to look you up.] We will miss you at SPE next week = Ellen [Manchester], Deborah, Helen, Chuck, Alex, Kenda [North] will all be here. Can you believe it? I also have an old-fashioned date next week, which is making me nervous as hell. Cross your fingers. P

28 Feb 77 NYC I'm glad to hear you're enjoying L.A. (I like your Watts Towers pic; incidentally, now that I have your bound picture framed, everybody admires it. Susan [Jonny's wife. that one] noted its similarity to a Tina Modotti [in the MOMA show] of A Marionetteer's hands—all bound w/ strings.) We had a break in the cold—it was 60º on Saturday and everybody was bopping around. But it's back to 30 today. Dave Freund is part of a 5-man show at the Old Public School that is now the classiest art place in town. Haven't seen him or the show yet. Love, Pete Good luck on your gallery job!

6.30.76 continued and then just wandered around little Italy trying to resist the pastry shops (I didn't, I finally stopped at the Palermo Cafe + indulged my over-active sweet tooth.) This trip was/is very good for dispelling all sorts of emotional-romantic ties with Peter [Galassi]. Will explain more when I see you, which is too far away. xoxoxo Bonnie

Dear Marshall, Well, in terms of getting famous, nothing has happened. OK Harris only deals with "cold + dispassionate realism," my pics are "too mystical." Light Gallery is putting me off because V. [Victor] Schraeger is just back in town from Europe; but I will persist. I will take the stuff to the Modern today, + have a lunch date with the guy at Castelli Graphics—he used to be at Light, + is as friend of Peter's [Galassi]. Shuck + jive. Spent yesterday lugging my prints around Soho...

Bonnie & Marshall, Didn't write sooner as I had no address for you. Finally called information. Met Tod [Papageorge] and [Peter Galassi] Gallasie [sic] at a LIGHT opening. Emotionally exhausted from peddling my work. Look forward to seeing you. Love Susan. OR UNDRESS!
