Dear Dean:
Herewith the last version, very little altered from our conference at Marberth. A few items toned down slightly and some small additions provoked by a call from Otto Schmitt which indicated that the conference was intended to provoke suggestions for fields of work.
This ought not to come out before the conference, which still leaves not too much time to get it into Science. Use one of the carbons for possible alterations; I would prefer if you can have the final ms. typed - my secretary is going to be swamped with the forthcoming symposium.
I would appreciate your trying out p. 3 on your astrophysical friends; Joe Hirschfelder thinks that grains couldn't possibly form in space and would have to redissociate into atoms. He's the first person I've talked to who doubts the grains - I have to get him together with Whitford!
Yours,
Joshua
P.S. The NIH study section is meeting May 8-10 at the Hotel Raleigh (12th and Penna Ave.) Should I get a reservation there, or did you (a) invite me to stay over with the Cowies, and (b) is it convenient to commute? The latter seems improbable, as we will be heavily tied up, so I have to ask your judgment.
What a mess of a schedule in May!
