Dear Josh and Esther, we are taking a three week holiday with the family in the new house. Everything [sic] fine including
the weather, but Violetta has a staph infection which is somewhat troublesome. With Aug 24 will start work again. Tempo
Medico has sent you (and to me also) the Milan interview. There are a few inexactitudes, but none of them serious and on
the whole I think they made a good job. The committee for examining candidates to the genetics chair has been named. Geneticists
have not obtained a majority, as I feared. Yiovanni's and Ruggero's chances seem pretty dim, I hope my own have not
deteriorated too much. It is very uncomfortable. All the best from Alba, the children and myself.
