Dear Dr. Lederberg,
I certainly enjoyed our conversation last Friday afternoon. Your personal recollections of the reception of Avery's'44 paper brought that period to life--in all of life's complexity.
It was very kind of you to give your time so generously. Thank you for the reprints you gave me; when I have read them and thought more about this piece of history, I may indeed take up your offer to speak with me again.
Sincerely,
Gordon Bearn
