Thank you for the formal offer of a visiting professorship in your letter of 20th March. My employers, the Medical Research
Council, have agreed to give me leave of absence, and I have much pleasure in accepting it on the terms stated.
As to the topics of the lectures, I have discussed the matter with Professor Doty, who advises me that rather than cover merely
structure, I should give a course roughly corresponding to my range of interests. This is the structure, synthesis and function
of the more important biological macromolecules, in particular the proteins and the nucleic acid, and would include their
relation to genetics.
I enclose the biographical form which I have filled in.
