Transcript:
Dear Josh and Esther,
Thank so very much for your warming letter which I appreciate all the more after being "untimely ripped from my mother's womb". I'm looking forward to meeting you both. Possibly between June and August we'll next visit Madison with two french friends of yours, Anna Maria Torreaux[?] and Luigi Gorini who are coming to the states to work with Bernie Davis.
I wanted the reprints rather soon because I'm teaching genetics and also giving seminars here and there. The missing are 35/528 25/450 36/558 37/516 38/518 39/553/ 42/- 43/545 44/548 45/554

I'll tell you how things are getting on in antibody synthesis, if I ever can get started in this "inferno".
Best to you both,
Mel
