Letter from A. Clark Griffin, University of Texas to Marshall W. Nirenberg
A. Clark Griffin, professor of biochemistry at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute, thanks
Nirenberg for reprints of his articles and commends him for his recent article "The Genetic Code: II" published in
Scientific American 208, no. 3 (1963): 80-94. He mentions research progress made in the manipulation of tumor ribosome's
and promises a subsequent letter with detailed findings.

Many thanks for the reprints and your note. We have had an unusually good winter, a little on the cold side for the native
Texans, but I thought it was just right. Next year you must come down when the weather is at its worst in Bethesda.
Just read your article in the latest issue of Scientific American, an excellent presentation.
We are gradually learning the ways of manipulation of tumor ribosomes and have some interesting studies in progress. I'll
bring you up to date in a subsequent letter, we are in the process of evaluating and writing up some of our findings.
Wendell Stanley is going to present this year's Mike Hogg Lecture, he will have to perform very well to meet the high
standards you set last year. Incidentally, Marshall, I would greatly appreciate if you would send me an autographed photograph
for my office, I have them from all of those who have participated in this lecture series.
We all send our best wishes for continued success and progress in your exciting research program.
