Your 1986 paper in Defense Analysis has only just come to my attention. I wish I had located it much sooner! Yours is the
most lucid account I have yet found on the intelligence that motivated the US BW effort at Ft. Detrick. (It sounds more robust
than I had visualized)
May I ask you a question!? (I have no experience with the WW-2 archives). If you copied the JCS reports mentioned in your
Note 5, would it be feasible for you to recopy and send me those that refer to German BW capability and intentions? I will
of course reimburse your costs of copying.
Have you published further on this subject?

I have Hinsley through vol 3 pt 2. Have further volumes been published? I have been awaiting what ULTRA might have told about
these issues Or has there been some holdup on publication? (I had heard that Mrs. Thatcher was not too pleased.)
