I learned the other day that Leland Stanford is trying to induce seduce of "transduce" you to come and live with them.
Of course, one cannot suggest that our robust and variable climate can compete too successfully with the equable sameness
of the California coast. But it is just possible that equable sameness is not desirable for all of us. However, it is a
more important climate, the intellectual that I am sure you will consider carefully before coming to a decision. And personal
relations that I am sure, have been highly satisfactory and stimulating here
All of this is merely to say that as one of the oldsters, I have enjoyed your being here and have appreciated your influence
and your significant contributions. I hope we can persuade you that further transductions can progress excellently here.
