Letter from Francis Crick to Luigi Silvestri
Description:
Crick was in such demand as a lecturer and participant at conferences that on several occasions during the 1960s and early 1970s, he cited exhaustion as a medical reason for declining speaking engagements. In this case, Crick prematurely left a colloquium on "Cell Interactions," held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, November 15-17, 1971, even though he was scheduled to chair a later session.

Transcript:
24th November, 1971
Dear Dr. Silvestri,
Do please accept my deepest apologies for abandoning the Lepetit Symposium towards the end of the first day. I am afraid I have been overworking too much - my doctor has now told me to have a complete rest for several weeks. I hear the Symposium was very good value although, as you feared, it tended to fall into three separate parts, but I'm afraid this is probably due to the present state of the subject.
Yours sincerely,
F.H.C. Crick
