[Dictation of a Howard University talk acceptance letter]
Marshall Nirenberg relayed his daily requests to his laboratory with the use of audio recordings called "belts". These recordings would then be transcribed into notes for the various members of the laboratory. In this belt, Nirenberg writes a draft for a letter to Howard University. This letter announces his lecture at Howard University titled "Genetic Versus Neural Information Processing Systems".

1. Loretta have we ordered a book called "Teratology Of The Central Nervous System" that is from the University of Chicago Press, this brochure here describes it. I may have already ordered it but if not, then we should order 1 for myself and 1 for the Lab. I don't know the cost of it though.
Now this memorandum from Evelyn Attix about Foreign Travel for 1969-1970 I don't expect to do any foreign travel then and you should ask Alan Peterkofsky and Tom Caskey; also pass this information on to Evelyn Attix.
And this request from Mundschenk - just send a reprint of the Cold Spring Harbor paper for 1966 and also if we have a manuscript a copy of it from the one that went off to the Journal of the American Medical Association that review that I wrote recently send a copy of that also to him.
Post this announcement on the bulletin board from the Laboratory of Neurophysiology.
Also, for outgoing letters and things which I am supposed to sign I think it probably would be best if I sign them because that is the only way I have of ever knowing that the letter has gone out.
Then I would like to send a letter to:
Dr. Angella Ferguson
College of Medicine
Department of Pediatrics
Howard University
Washington, D.C.
Dear Dr. Ferguson:
I shall be glad to participate in the Seminar on Genetic and Developmental Aspects of Mental Retardation as we have discussed previously, but I do not wish to have my talk published. As I mentioned earlier, I would be glad to discuss the work that we are trying to do but the work is not far enough along to have it published in any form. It really would not be appropriate to publish this type of presentation. So I would be able to participate in the Seminar only if the understanding that my remarks would not be published. If this is agreeable, the title of my talk is "Some Thought on Genetic and Neural Information Processing". "Genetic versus Neural Information Processing Systems"
Sincerely yours,
