Letter from Vulimiri Ramalingaswami, Harvard University to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Nirenberg continued to provide advice to scientists in the field of genetics throughout his career, long after he switched to work in neurobiology. In this follow-up to an earlier letter, Ramalingaswami asks for Nirenberg's opinion on a paper written on codons for publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Dear Dr Nirenberg
I should be most gratified if you would be so kind as to let me have your most valuable opinion on the paper entitled: "Possible evolution of sphere Janetion [?] Signals from stop Codons" written by P. Sinepathy for possible publication in PNAS. I know how busy you are and I apologize for this intrusion on your time.
With kind regards
O. Ramalingaswami
