Dear Josh,
This is mainly to let you know that I am leaving dear O.B.L. and am looking for another post.

Speaking of Dave Bonner his first child Mathew David was born last Saturday, Miriam is very well and we had suitable celebrations over in microbiology.
Have you seen the last penguin "New Biology" with an article by Lewin on flagella and another by Haldane on microbial genetics in which he calls your '47 paper "one of the classics of biology." I told Tippo that bacteria had sex and that the discovery was made in this dept. and he seemed interested--I believe he mentioned it in his undergraduate lectures.
Yours Haig
Regards to Jim Crow
