Dear Lederberg,
Thank you for the change of address note. I hope you will enjoy your new home, and Mrs. L likewise.
Thank you also for your reprint of Moondust. It comes at a most opportune moment, because, by an odd coincidence, I am in the middle of doing some popular science, on radio and T.V., to which this is highly pertinent. Naturally, I

am mostly interested in the possible colonization of extra-terrestrial bodies by bacteria, but it's well worth noting.
Last but not least: heartiest congratulations on the Nobel Prize. It is about time a bit of that money went to a genuine biologist.
What a coincidence that you should have to go back to Sweden so soon! Myself, I prefer Denmark: they are less intense and the booze is a whole lot easier to get.
Best wishes to you both,
Sincerely,
K.A. Bisset
P.S.--Will you seek out Prof. Clifton and give him my very best wishes also.
