[stamped, MAY 19 1992]
As before, it was a great treat to see you.
Enclosed, a number of things that may amuse you -- at leisure. Marguerite and I will certainly keep your very gracious invitation in mind!
The one thing I have to ask of you is the system you mentioned for Windows 3.1 to deal with exchange of commentary on items retrieved from bibliographic data bases. We don't have that.
Yours sincerely,
Joshua

Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
Node:  Ellison, Larry. CEO of Oracle, and later patron of the
Ellison Medical Foundation.  My first meeting with him was
Feb 11, 1992 , at his behest after he had heard me give a lecture
on AI at Stanford in '90 or '91;

KW: " ... great treat to see you...'; he'd invited Marguerite and
myselfm to stay at his home;  I ask for a marginal annotation
software system;  and we had discussed Zwicky, on morphological
method in astronomy; Freudenthal LINCOS, language for cosmic
discourse; SAM-160;  P-121;
