Your finding of a mutation is a gene that suppresses pab is most interesting. It is probably analogous to some of the "suppressors"
known in Drosophila and in other organisms.
We are sending one pab less mutant that is probably the same as 1633. There are several others which Miss Zimmer is working
on to see if they are the same as 1633 or not. At least one seems to be different. Since Miss Z is using these for her MA
thesis, I hesitate to send them unless there is some specific purpose for which you want them. If you'd like to see if
the E1633 gene suppresses a different pab mutant

I am sure Miss Z would be glad to arrange to have you do this. Also I'm sure she'd like to have a stock of E1633
after you've had a chance to do some more with it. I'll urge you to publish an account of this as soon as you can
as it seems to me to be a particularly interesting case.
Thanks for the morph mutant. We call them "cauliflowers" and there are so many of the same general type that it isn't
possible to say which one its [sic] like.
