[stamped, OCT 29 1979]
Dear Sarge
Thank you for returning my call -- I know how busy you must be. So I am even more bashful about what might be further impositions on your time. But harking back to my 3 hour seminar with you, at the Peace Corps, on DNA I know you would find this place as exciting as I have; and visiting here might just not be another "burden".
Anyhow, here are a few dates (attached) "just in case" -- you'd enjoy the company as well as the content; and in any case Eunice or yourself or both would be most welcome any time you could make it here!
All the best,
Joshua
