[stamped, JAN 28 1980]
To yours dated Feb 2. 1979 (sic)
This took a couple of months to be forwarded from Stanford here. That still does not excuse the delay!
It happens I have just been named to chair the "President's Cancer Panel" over here, so indeed I shall be in the thick of it. I wanted to tell you that, but the appointment papers were delayed for months in the White House; but I had to stay mum. In short I might be the one to write such a piece -- but not for another year.
May I suggest Walter Bodener or David Baltimore (MIT) if the matter is not by now long moot.
Please let me know your next visit to N.Y. It would be good to see you again.
Yours,
Joshua.
