Dr. Nikolai P Bochkov
[stamped, JUL 16 1985]
Dear Dr. Bochkov
Your hospitality during my visit to Moscow could not have been more warm and friendly; and I am very much indebted to your wife, to Azad. Kapitsa, and to yourself to adding a great deal to the congeniality of my first visit to the Soviet Union.
More than most of our colleagues, you and I are also very much aware of the dangers that would follow from a technology race in BW, and from the proliferation of the use of BW by 3d. parties. We are also agreed that an indispensable next step is more open discussion among professionals in and between both of our countries who can share our scientific background. With new leadership in your country -- and inevitably eventually in ours -- new opportunities may emerge for new patterns of relationship less hardened by the mistakes of history.
[END PAGE ONE]
[BEGIN PAGE TWO]
In any event I look forward to the possibility of a renewal of our own discussions on these matters, and also on medical genetics.
Your next visit to the U.S., I hope you can give me some advance notice and that we can arrange for you to visit, perhaps to speak, at the Rockefeller University.
With best regards,
Sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
