Dear Joshua,
I can't make any very definite statement. As you know I am very happy here and hate the thought of making a change -- I mean hate the thought of the mechanics of change.
However, I realize the great advantage of better facilities, perhaps, and better contacts -- chiefly with your group and with genuine biochemists.
The chief issue, though, both from your point of view and mine, is whether I want to do more teaching, graduate or otherwise. So far as I can tell, my urge in this direction is negligible.
I can't visit you next month because Jill and I have planned a very full vacation schedule beginning July 6.

I suggest that we think about it on both sides during the summer and reach a decision in the fall. I certainly do not wish to say no at this time.
I hope you and Esther have a profitable and pleasant stay in Australia.
Sinc
Al
P.S. To give you one definite fact: my present salary is $9500.
