Dear Joshua,
It is wonderful that you still remembered your promise to write to me. You will immediately learn that this thoughtfulness is rewarded.
After quite a few years I met in H. H. John Edsall, an old friend of mine! To whom fortunately I mentioned the doubtful source of that sentence. Through him I got a clear cut answer. You will find it under the title Authenticity of Scientific Anecdotes in : "Nature" Vol. 157. p. 169-197. (Feb 16, 1946) and " " p. 305. (March 9 1946)
There is nothing to be added. You will enjoy the whole story as much as I did.
I am keenly looking forward to

getting your reprint of the paper in the "Horizons." I am happy to experience that the number of scientists interested in philosophical aspects is - though slowly - increasing.
In this connection I may draw your attention to the United[?] Herter Lecture of Hans Krebs (Bulletin of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Vol. 95. p. 19, 1954).
I reciprocate your good wishes for 1955 and hope they will help me to come to W.H. and to see you.
Cordially yours
O. Loewi
