Dear Maxine,
I phoned your office this morning in order to tell you of my joy at the news brought by your letter. I was told that you will be away until the 28th -- hence this communication.
Your appointment to head the Carnegie Institution is the best news I have had in a long time. For many years, I have received the President's Annual Reports, which I read with admiration for the determined[?] policy to resist social pressures to cheapen the values of science. So I congratulate both you and the Institution -- you are ideally suited for each other. I took the liberty of showing your letter to Topay[?], who asked me especially to tell you how happy he is for you. She is mending[?] well, has started to go back to her lab, and we may go travelling again in May -- this time to Japan as guests of the Protein Research Foundation in Osaka. I hope that this will be an opportunity to see you in New Haven next month. If your schedule will permit it, let me know what day you may be free for lunch -- there is much to talk about.

Either drop me a line or phone me at home (202-624-3735) preferably during the lat afternoon. I no longer have an office in KBT, so you can cross out my former phone number there.
If you have in your files an extra copy of your curriculum vitae and list of publications, could I have it please? I want to put you up for the American Philosophical Society -- it is a very nice club.
Affectionately,
Joe
