Alphaeus P. Cole, Hotel Chelsea 222 West 25rd Street New York, N.Y. 10011 January 5th, 1977 Mr. William I. Homer, Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Del. 19711 Dear Mr. Homer: I munt first thank you for telling me to send my article on my student days in Paris to the American Art Journal. It was published in the November issue - as you know, and I was very pleased about it. I seem to remember that it was about that time that you mentioned that the Delaware Museum might like to have some of my paintings - however, nothing was done about it. Since then I have been awarded the Salmag-undi Medal of Honor - and interest in my paintings has increased. I am now 100 years and 7 months old and think that if you want some of my paintings, you better come with a station wagon and get them - I would give you my very best. You will, I think, be interested in the enclosed clipping from the Lyme Gazette - the Lyme Art Association gave me a splendid birthday party for my own centennial, and I also recsived many congratulatory letters from prominent people, like Vice-President Rockefeller, J. William Middendorf II, Secretary of the Navy, Mayor Abe Beame, Governor Carey and other. The Lyme Art Association made me Honorary Dean of the new Art School there, put up some bronze plaques and dedicated the School to Alphaeus P. Cole. I hope to hear from you soon and remain with best regard, sincerely yours.
