Dear Joshua:
As I have telephoned to you this September, I shall visit California at Santa Barbara on Jan. 2nd to Jan 8th of 1977, in order to attend the Gordon Conference on Bacterial Cell surface.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to visit you very much.
There is a little problem about the date and time of my visit you, and I would like to know, how I should be able to manage it.
Because of my visit of U.S. this time is strictly regulated by the administration of Japanese Government which sponcered [sic] my visit of Santa Barbara. I am ordered by them to arrive Jan. 2nd, stay Santa Barbara, and leave US on Jan. 9th to come back Japan. No modification of this schedule is allowed to me.

The Conference will over at Jan. 7th (Fri), noon.
Under these circumstances, I am able to visit Stanford on Jan 8th (Sat) morning, or Jan 7th (Fri) late afternoon.
I am worrying a case if you could not be in your office on these data and time, then it become difficult to see you there. If this is the case, I might skip the Conference a day to see you, althugh [sic] I would very much like to attend the whole Conference.
I shall telephone you at your office from Santa Barbara regarding this matter. I feel very sorry to give you my tight schedule at this late, but I could not do it the sooner.
Under the separate mail, I sent to you the 2nd version of a manuscript to P.N.A.S. (Matsuhashi et. al). Two Zerox [sic] copies are included. Please find it, and I would like to learn your opinion on it when I visit Stanford.
Jack Strominger, Michio Matsuhashi, and me shall meet at the Gordon Conference to discuss about the manuscript. So that please keep it in your hands.
[cut off digital scan, Thank you very much,
and Sincerely yours,
Yuki]
