Transcript:
Dear Miss Frazer:
Thank you for your letter of October 18. I have waited to reply until I could make full use of some of the references. As you predicted they are not for the most part very pertinent to my inquiry and I will have to ask some of my friends at the Rockefeller University to see whether other business papers have perhaps been saved.
If it is not too much trouble to you I would appreciate getting copies of the items mentioned in your letter and which I have marked herewith for your convenience.
I am sending you one or two things that may add to your collection about Dr. Avery.
