I have just written to Norman to say that I have decided to stay here against a possible day when I might be asked to organize
a genetics department in a school which does not have it. As I told Norman I don't know whether or not this is the right
decision, but I do feel comfortable with it.
I do not, however, feel good about missing an association with you and with Norman and with Stanford. This has been the source
of much misery, I am most grateful to you both for thinking of me.
With warmest regards to yourself and to Esther, and Happy New Year,
