Dear Josh
Dear Esther
I won't answer fully to your last and very interesting letter, this I will leave forlater on, but just give you some news as I am out of the clinic where they removed my gall-bladder.
At last the doctors discovered, by a new set of X rays examination (with a new, intravenously injected, iodinated German[?] products) a large and full of stones gall-bladder.
There was nothing else left that[?] to remove it and, as the cheledoc[?] appeared (by a mesometric[?] investigation performed during the operation) to be in good functioning condition they hope that I will be completely and definitely cured from my troubles[?].
The operation went perfectly, except for some anesthetic difficulties, and I am recovering very rapidly. I am now allowed to stay part of the time out of bed and went outside to turn around the block for the first time yesterday.
Thank you very much indeed for Pogo, it entertained me a lot, these last days and, though I am afraid I did not understand everything and all the limits, the little I did understand seems very funny.
I am now looking towards the future with confidence, though , my administrative position is not yet clearly settled, because I think that one of the main reason which was impairing my work bad health is now removed.

I will soon send you the main scientific books advertising list, and also the Pierre Auger's book: "l'homme microscopique"
A longer letter soon.
My best greetings for both of you,
Your's as ever,
Alain
