Abiquiu, N.M. 1/30/53
I wish you were here tonight - I have a new painting that I think is good and I would like you to see it - It is the first time I have felt that way in a long time - I must still work on it a little tomorrow but I am oddly pleased with it - The kind of a painting I would enjoy showing to Alfred. I am glad you are feeling better even if it is slow. If you write to Doris don't ask here to visit you - complain about your health - tell about your order - you are not going to be at home - She would only be a headache to you. I am all set to work and plan not to be home
if she is really coming - No good can come of seeing her - either for her or me - Also there has been much flu about. And I am not going to be here to care for her if she gets sick - Ive told her I cant have her in the house - that I wish to be alone at this time - which she knows without being told
My love to you
