Dear Josh
I send you just these few words because I am a little annoyed about my subscription to the Journal of Immunology.
Did you receive my letter with the check enclosed? If not, would you be kind to tell me because I don't know if the Treasurer of the American Association of Immunologists has received my fees for 1964[?] and if it is the reason why I do not receive the J. of Immunology any more?
Could you tell me, also, if you received the catalogue of the main French Scientific publishers! If you want[?] Scientific books from this country don't hesitate to tell me.
How his[sic] your political situation developing? We have been afraid, a week ago, of your president and secretary[?] of States declarations and relieved now that the bluff is over. Was it pure bluff or a real determination counterbalanced by public opinion in the States and the reaction of England? What about Mac Carthy's circus? Does his popularity increase or decrease?
have not much to tell you about France, though, [ . . . ] an attitude should be determinant now, as Indochina seems to be the turning point of Cold War toward the U.S., not by necessity but by a strange attitude of pathological absence of will.
Are you not finally planning to visit us. We are all waiting for you.
Give my love to Esther
Yours as ever
Alain
