Dear Josh,
Enclosed is a copy of the text of Avery's letter to his brother. Several years ago, I wrote a history of the discovery of transformation, which I never published, and had included the letter. I have xeroxed the two pages of my text, since we are having secretarial troubles right now. it's [sic] messy, and my apologies, but it is all there.
Boris enjoyed his evening with you and Esther very much, and communicated to me your sympathetic research. The only really distressing thing about our situation is that I have built up a splendid group here, and we are able to explore transformation as I would never do in the past. Some areas of research cannot go ahead at any reasonable rate when one is alone with a technician, or aided with a temporary associate.

I am enclosing the reprint (which you probably already have, but with a gross error in the abstract) to give you some idea of the directions we are looking into.
With kindest regards to Esther and yourself.
Sincerely,
Harriett.
