Dear Josh and Esther,
It was very thoughtful of you to send me your reprints. I thought I would read them though before writing, but I find them a little too heavy for that--I am pretty rusty now on the subject. But I did see a number of very interesting things in them, such as the 4-arm linkage diagrams, and I shall be pleased to have them for reference.

I hope you are both in good health. It's time you started a family, I think, if you haven't already. Hope we'll meet at the next Genetics meeting.
Sincerely yours,
Gordon Allen
