Dear John,
For some time I have wanted to write you to congratulate you on becoming the President of an institution to which I am grateful for the first support I received in this country and also for much continuing guidance and advice over the years. The immediate stimulus for this letter, however, is to congratulate you on being censured by the Massachusetts Medical Society. I imagine that it makes you as proud as my discovery that I was on the NIH blacklist made me.
Please count on me if there is anything I can do for you or the Foundation.
Sincerely yours,
S. E. Luria
