Dec. 18 – Dec. 30. — / Twenty days of confusion —
My helplessness in the face of war lasted until the end of the week — A strong comforting letter from Frank R. [Rehn] helped to clarify my mind, and what my relation to the struggle must be. He wrote that he felt very deeply and sincerely that I, and other artists, should continue to paint as before.
Charles Burchfield, December 18-30, 1941
