Dear Josh: Never question the veracity and/or accuracy The Rattor on Lederberg.
How do you regard the book by H. Gruneberg - Animal Genetics and Medicine Hamish London - 1947??
Is the book Genetics in the 20th Century worthwhile reading aside from chapters 10 and 13 ? Are characteristics acquired? Our boy Bambi talks at 3 1/2 months!
C and E Hews 31 #35, 3550 (1953) [8/31]. I fell asleep at 6:45 PM while eating an onion-mustard-catchup sandwich and wakened at 12:01 AM with Lederberg on my mind. Be not disturbed - sometimes I awake thinking of the role of starch on a soiled shirt.
Cordially
Karl Paul Link
