[stamped, Professor Joshua Lederberg
The Rockefeller University
New York, NY 10021-6399]
Dear Dr. Rosqvist --
I would be grateful to you for reprints of your further work on gnetics [sic] of virulence in Yersinia.
Do you know of any study of the "bubonic to pneumonic" transition? Anecdotally, the portal of infection suffices to control this; but I have long suspected a mutation. Is there any evidence, one way or the other?
Sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
