[stamped, MAR 25 1981]
Thank you for sending me the Einstein commemorative and the (most impressive!) directory of 50 years of the Institute.
I was briefly puzzled by the inclusion of other texts -- sample attached. -- in some redundancy
I wondered if you were continuing our kabbalistic discussion!
Finally it was clear that these were signatures of "The Symbolic Quest" presumably just surplus paper used for wrapping!
Where must we look in our quest for meaning!
Yours,
Joshua.

P.S.
Please let me know next time you're nearby and we could have an hour together I need some counselling [sic] on how to think about interinstitutional cooperation and development.
Joshua.
