I talked to Bob Alway and was very encouraged. He said that he was confident the financial support for your department would
be forthcoming eventually and was setting this down in a letter to you. I assume that this will take the form of a formal
offer which you can now consider. If I don't hear from you, I'll call you next week to check before leaving St. Louis
for the week. We plan to leave June 28 and spend July 7-15 in Palo Alto.
Many thanks for your reprints and also the one of Childs [sic] paper. I haven't yet done any detective work on him but
shall when the case gets hot.
