I am delighted that you are willing to take over the reigns [sic] at Rockefeller. You have the courage and the mind to make
it better than it is.
I have a very fond feeling for both you and the institution. I spent a number of very happy years there learning how to work
and think. You have come a long way since the day I first saw you at Cold Spring Harbor in 1946 defending your data against
the onslaught of Monod, Lwoff, and Delbruck.
I shall watch with the greatest interest developments at Rockefeller --
