Dear Lederberg,
You may recall that you told me, some time back, that I might use your picture of diploids if the C.S.H. people gave permission.

I haven't had to revise my previous views on any major points except concerning the centripetal growth of septa; which point has been cleared up by Chapman and Hilliers' sections. Everything else has been confirmed in the most gratifying manner--and even you geneticists are getting nearer and nearer all the time to the cycles I sketched for you in 1949--(although, as I said at C.S.H., nothing makes a geneticist so mad as having a cytologist reasoning ahead of him).
Events since 1951 have not convinced me that I shall have to include a section on equational mitosis, either! Although it is a dead certainty that that theory will always have one supporter.
Best regards to yourself and Mrs. Lederberg,
Sincerely--
Bisset
