I am delighted that you will help with the nomenclature business. I agree it would be helpful to have some discussion, but
a meeting seems prohibitively expensive, and a multi-continental conference call difficult to arrange. I hope a consensus
can be reached by mail, but the tenor of letters like Dan's do not auger well. What do you think of "human AIDS virus"?
Conflicting engagements (and a distaste for the previous meeting) will keep me from the gene therapy meeting on April 1.
However, I will make a particular effort to be on hand for consideration of the first proposals, and I hope to see you then.
I agree with Gould's sentiments; Thanks for the copy.
