My dear Fredericq:
Thank you so much for the cultures and the letter commenting on them. I am very grateful to you for your generosity. If you will let me know your travel plans this spring, I will see if we cannot arrange a formal invitation for a lecture here that might help cover your travel expense. In any case I will be happy to see you.
I was pleased to have your opinions on the other questions. However, I must admit that I was distressed that you should distinguish between "virus-like" and "plasmid-like", since the only point of introducing plasmid as a new term was to avert such distinction.
With best regards,
Joshua Lederberg
P.S. I find the TR27 to be now Ss.
