Dear Dr. Lederberg,
Many thanks for your kind letter of Dec. 7. I was really delighted to know that you are going to visit our campus in the coming spring. I am looking forward to have your lecture and to see you here. While my staying in this country, I am planning to go to Madison to see you there and additionally to meet with one of my intimate friends, Dr. G. Takagi, who has been studying in your Macardle Memorial Cancer Institute. He is an assistant Prof. of the Biochemistry, Osaka Municipal Medical College and a son of our Professor Takagi, Department of Anatomy, our Osaka University Medical School, Osaka Japan. If you are so kind to see him, I should much grateful to you.
Our group members have always been talked highly about your University. I have also felt great interest in several reports on Trichomonas and Trypanosoma appearing in your University. I have always had high regards to his brilliant and profound works Trichomonas factor accomplished by late Prof. Morgan, your Department.
Of Mr. [...], I am sorry to say that I have no personal and official acquaintance with him, because I had joined the Japanese society of Geneticists only a few years ago. Therefore it is impossible for me to criticize his data and his personality. However, I can suggest you that it would be better to ask Prof. Hildeo KIKKAWA, Prof. of Genetics, Dep. of Genetics, Osaka University Medical School, who will be surely much acquaintance with him.
With best wishes,
Very sincerely yours,
Shozo Inoki
