Searle delights at how "[his] reputation has gone up considerably in Fleet Street since the Graphic article - mostly editors and in a tone of marked respect!" (15 January 1949). With his reputation well established, Searle writes how he has "asked Charles Pick of Heinemann's to whisk [Jock] over a copy of From Frozen North to Filthy Lucre as soon as possible." which had a successful "Publication in November - late" and tells of the Bremen exhibition scheduled to "open at the Kunsthalle on 24 January, 1965...There will be over 200 pictures including a good proportion of 'Anatomies'. It is a retrospective of about 5 years work." (19 October 1967)
