Thanks for your nice letter. I am lecturing at Harvard Biological Lab on Oct 19 but will be back around noon Saturday Oct
20. Please, leave words with Barbara concing [sic] that weekend.
Concering [sic] terminology I have an article ready (almost) for Physiol. Rev. in which I use the terminology URPPgal, URPPP,
Pgal et. Everybody talked me out of it for the galactosemia articles. But I am going back to this terminology which is more
descriptive. It is just a little difficult to say URPPgal, URPPGlu in a lecture.
You were interested in a t-epimerase-less bug. I have a place which may work. Grow pneumococcus XIV in anti XIV serum in
the absence of galactose. Whatever grows diffuse is subcultured in anti XIV in gal. free mat.[?] and in galt. In the first
case one should again get diffuse growth in the latter case agglutin. This is an old Avery trick. Heidelberger confirmed
that XIV has lot's [sic] of galactose in the capsule and that it is the terminal sugar.
Mme le dorteur Huguette Szulmajisti[?] has joined us. She has a lot of interesting yeast mutants. One is a double mutant;
another a pyrimidine-less. Both of them could be very useful. -- Our institute has initiated a new travelling plan which
might appeal to universities without money. We are not permitted to let the universities pays [sic] us even if they want
to. Any invitation to lecture at a university will be payed [sic] by Mr. Foelsom. This applies to expenses. It's strange
to see socialization of us come from a republican government!
