Dear Josh,
We would like it very much if you would stay with us. I suggest you go directly to U/S upon arrival, give your lecture, and then come to our house when you have finished with them. Our apt is only 3 min from the lab.
Szilard is not here this minute, but I would not be surprised were he to return from Europe by next week.
U of I is ins a funny place, being about 1500W and 400S, while we are 1000E and 5700S. (There are 800/mile, one block = 100). Suggest you take cab from U/I to our house or call and I'll come get you.
Be prepared to lecture on the Southern constellations!!
Regards,
Aaron
P.S. We expect to return from LaJolla 1/3 5:30 pm, leaving here 12/30
