Transcript:
Dear Josh,
Now that I have passed from Paris to purgatory, I'd appreciate being put on your permanent reprint list at this address.
At present I'm rattling around an empty laboratory, sharpening pencils and wits. However Jacques is doing like wise in his new department in Paris.
I'm looking forward to meeting you some day and, possibly, if I may, spending some time with you streaking[?] Petri dishes and talking about sex. I've tended[?] to change subject, after I finish characterizing Pz and Gz. Very likely I'll began to study antibody synthesis provided I can set up clones of cells differing by the characteristic[?] of synthesis of a given antibody.
In any case this is purely gratuitous
Best,
Mel.
