Dear Josh -
I hope you'll forgive me for not writing sooner to thank you for the reprints. I really intended to dash off a note to you right away, when they came, but I didn't. Then shortly Christmas vacation came along, and after that semester exams and bang! -- here we are in the second semester.
he above interferences have also prevented our getting any resolutions made re mustard gas and our little embryos. However, we have just finished some re-modeling which gives us a new bacti-histology lab, and a new research lab - - the latter has been somewhat neglected to encourage the carpenters, electricians, plumbers etc. to finish up the other so we could move in this week. However, we're pretty well settled now, and as both the head of the department and I have most of Thursday off, we hope to get started right away.
I did take time from vacations, and correcting papers to go there thru'[SIC] the reprints in order, so that I can at least follow your train

of thought. It is really fascinating and when my friend next stops by, I'll be well fortified. You may be interested to know that we're discussing the work (in a generalized way) in our student seminar this semester.
I'm glad my letter finally reached you and I do appreciate the information you sent. We'll probably take a lad from Stalman and Stauffer.
Haven't heard much from the kids sill at Columbia since most of my correspondence has been stagnating for months. Dr. Rhoades, I hear spent the last semester in Brazil but is back, now.
How do you like Wisconsin.
Thanks again for the suggestions and the reprints. Will let you know when we're about to shake the world of science.
Sincerely,
Pat Daugherty
