Dear Lederberg,
One of these days, I hope to prepare another edition of my cytology book, and am collecting material all the time.
I would be very glad to have, for this purpose, an original photograph of one of your copulating bacteria in action.

I will confine myself to stating exactly what it is, in your own terms, so that you need have no fear of my giving it a slanted interpretation.
Several people could, of course, provide such material, and I have a couple of cultures myself that do so; but since you did discover the phenomenon, and proved it in such an elegant manner, I think the book should carry your picture.
I hope you like Stanford; please remember me to Clifton, also Mrs. J.L.
Yours sincerely,
Kenneth Bisset
