This will be probably not feasible. I will let you know, however, if and what type of program, I will ultimately propose
and what type of support would be required. It is my impression that it may be wiser to ask for more rather than less money
in order to enhance chances of a favorable consideration.

Thanks for your note with information about Ralph Dorfman.
I went to see Dr. Masland at N.I.H. on my way to other meetings and discussed with him and some of his associates a tentative
research program, which was based heavily on the suggestions you made while visiting with us. This program aroused sufficient
interest on their part to encourrage [sic] me to meet a March deadline of pertinent applications for support. Dr Saloway
from Nat. Inst. for Neurological diseases will come to Philadelphia by the end of this week to go over a tentative draft,
which I am in the process of preparing. I wish there was more time left for me to get the whole thing in presentable shape
to send you a copy and incorpurate [sic] your comments.

The whole venture is quite exciting.
Please accept and transmit to Esther my kindest greetings.
