Jacob will arrive in Chicago on Monday. Evans (Biochemistry) has arranged for him to give a seminar on Tuesday or Wednesday.
As soon as Jacob gets here I'll find out when he wants to arrive in Madison and will let you know. He's a very nice
guy so take good care of him.
We missed you at CSH, both personally and scientifically. Szilard and I were behind Tatum's call. I think I sensed why
you did not come and I sympathize with your position. Watson seemed a little sore and I urged him to visit you. You'll
never recognize him. He only talks English.
The intelligent people at CSH feel like I do. Even if this that Hayes says is correct it is really only one detail of your
story that is wrong--and even this detail seems almost semantic. We feel that your contributions have been so great as to
make me somewhat angry at Watson and Hayes. I fear I can only express myself properly orally so I'll defer elaboration.
There was nothing new at the symposium. It was pretty much the usual Delbruck dominated show.

Dulbecco's polio plaques were pretty; Hershey gave a good, if cryptic, talk. Norton made the mistake of reading his MS
and this made it hard to follow. There were many long, dull, and poorly presented papers by the virologists and an occasional
bact. virologist. Bertani out did himself--best talk I've heard him give.
By the way I hope we get to see you before we take-off.
