I should like to compile a collection of autographs of prominent persons.
I hope you do not mind my imposing upon you and will permit me to include you to include you in my collection as I sincerely
believe that you, through your inspiring efforts and outstanding contributions, are endearing yourself to many people.
If you would be so kind as to autograph the enclosed card, I shall be very grateful. A stamped, return envelope is included
for your convenience.
If you have a photograph available that you could autograph, it would please me immensely.
I would be interested in knowing, Dr. Nirenberg, what you consider your greatest satisfaction thus far during your career.
With cordial best wishes, Sir, for continued success and much happiness,
