Thank you for your note. I agree that the fine book of my old student and friend Buchner should be translated. As a matter
of fact I think it's a disgrace that the sum of American biologists never heard of this the outstanding morphological
work of the last generation, with all its general consequences. (Symbiology, I think no, except maybe for licheur, Symbiontology
would at least be covered)

Unfortunately I cannot think of doing the translation myself. First I am writing myself a book, which will keep me busy for
some time. Second I am not very strong having been sick for 6 months, indisposed, with heart trouble and still working only
at home. But there should be many potential translation (if it is not yet underway, which one would have to find out from
Buchner via San Alessandro, Porto d'Inchia, Italy) Pa'tan, [...], might be willing, or Mrs. Schauer, the Schauers
being possible students of Buchner(?), [...] in Washington Bethesda.
