Understanding Mason--
Told M. that I'd seen a librarian, ERE, and AF all leave the RF in a way that gave some basis for reflection as to the 1 yr appointment. He said he couldn't speak for Trustees but personally he thought that being already 10 yrs in service I could look on appointment to RF as Director in MS as being the equivalent or the superior of academic post. I said that further than that I had nothing to add, and that I realized he, and [. . .] and Day were in the same boat. He added that most of the men who had left the RF Boards landed extremely well.
Told him I felt a little immature and would have preferred as I planned to come to NY at 48. I said I would be impatient at neither guidance nor criticism and that the period of possible service before me was such that I felt an elasticity in the wealth of time -- i.e. I would feel no tremendous rush to get through anything as the only reasonable or possible thing to do.
