My dear Dr. Flexner,
I do not need much time to consider the very attractive opportunity for work you outlined to me on Friday. If such an offer were confirmed by the Board of the Institute, I should accept with pleasure. I should like to have you realize that the chance to widen the scope of our work under your personal advice and direction would be very attractive to me.
It would also mean a great deal to me to be able to bring Dr. Cunningham and Dr. Doan. Of Dr. Cunningham, I am sure that his major and permanent interest is in research and we are now working together with the best type of arrrangement for joint research, with an equal contribution of ideas. Beside which he has marked ability to organize and carry the mass of detail of our experiments. Of Dr. Doan, as I told you, I think that his ultimate interest will be on the clinical side.
Very sincerely yours,
