Dear Tracy,
I spoke with Waddington, while in England, and he said he will be glad to take Beale after he comes to Indiana--A letter to this effect went to you and Beale from Waddington. Now, my feeling is that Beale may be hesitant to accept the offer and to take a Rockefeller fellowship, but I strongly feel that he should, and on my part I am not inclined to pay his salary if he can get it elsewhere, simply in order to preserve his freedom of decision as to his future for another year.
I think, also, it would be good for us if he went back to Waddington's place after leaving Indiana.
I am writing Beale along the same lines.

The congress is rather good although the Casfersson group is really a let down, not for ability, but for ideas. My paper went very well, and is getting lots of newspaper publicity--
We had a grand time in England, and shall leave for Copenhagen next Friday--
Best regards to you all, from Stella and myself.
Luria
