To the Editors:

Both Robert Johnston and Stephen H. Staempler have informed me that although eight of the original panels which Gorky painted for Newark Airport were destroyed in the 1950s [“Genius in Exile,” NYR, March 9], two were rediscovered in a Port Authority building at the airport in 1976 and are now on permanent loan to the Newark Museum.
