Dear Dr. Sabin --
Let me thank you again for all the nice things you did for me. You made my week-end in New York one of the most interesting and thrilling of my experience. You and Dr. Doan made me feel perfectly [sic] welcome and before I left I felt that I had know [sic] each of you for a long long time.
Also I want to thank you for your very nice letter to Dr. Longcope. Dr. Amoss and Dr. Longcope were very nice

to me although nothing definite was mentioned about the appointment. However, certain indirect statements give encouragement.
Dr. Amoss was of the opinion that I had acted wisely in taking an intern year at this time.
I look back on our conferences, dinners and visits to the symphony, the museum and up the Hudson with delightful remembrances.
Very sincerely,
Claude E. Forkner
P.S. I am eagerly anticipating the time when I can become associated with you at the Institute.
