As you may have heard from Hirota, I got married at the end of March, and made a smart (and small) home at the suburbs of
Misima city. The name of my wife is KUMIKO (= Eternal Beauty in English). I enclose two pictures which was taken during
our honeymoon at TOBA (National Park of Pearl Island). She was graduated from a Colledge [sic] of art and is interested in
drawing and design.
Owing to NIH grant, my laboratory is now satisfactorily well equiped [sic]. A medical doctor, Ichiro Sasaki, is studying
the H-antigen in relation to chi-phage. As you know h1-phage cannot attack Fla- type and Fla+ H1J . . . . He found that
the sensitivity to chi-phage in TM2 differs between phase-1 and phase-2, and also obtained a mor [sic] resistant mutant in
phase-2 (1.2-phase) without the change in antigenicity. The genetic analysis on these strains is now on the way. A biochemist,
Mr. Ichior Haruna, is studying the chemical analysis of flagellins obtained from various flagellor [sic] mutants. I am writing
papers on the genetics of flagellor [sic] morphology, and on the H1 duplicate type (i:6) obtained from S. alony[?] and S.
typhimurium. I will send the manuscripts when I finish writing.
