Dear Dan
I was so pleased to hear the news of the prize. Congratulations!
It was especially gratifying to see recognition that we are "in a serious enterprise" (Asilomar . . . . ), and that once again the R.U. has helped to launch a vigorous and fruitful career.
Your former colleagues and present friends all join me in best wishes.
Sincerely,
Joshua
