Dear Curt:
Demerec informed me that you had returned from Europe so I am hot on your trail. The situation is this - I am still up in the air about my plans. I understand that you are to be in Rochester this year and am wondering when you will be coming up. If you will be coming to Rochester by the middle of September I should like to come there and see you to talk over numerous things. Ithaca is only 90 miles from Rochester. It is an easy drive. We were all delighted to know that you were settled for a year at least. The salary may not be so good but it is liveable and Rochester is a fine city. I shall be glad to hear more of the details.
I got a letter from Bentley Glass. He is to be with Stadler this coming year. I hope that he can stop off at Ithaca on his way out. He had some interesting comments to make about his stay in Germany.
I have heard from Beadle several times this summer. Things are not so good with Sterling Emerson's health. I suppose that you get the news from the Dobzhanskys. I understand that they are delighted with their F1. Sturtevant stated that so much of Dobzhansky's letters to him have been full of details about the baby. I did not see Sturtevant but Marcus Rhoades was at Woods Hole for a few days and got some "dope" then.
There is almost not news from here. Our season of intensive activity is almost over now. We are waiting for the corn to ripen now to cash in on some of our results.
If you could drop me a line about your plans I should appreciate it very much.
Regards to Evelyn and hoping to see you both soon,
