Dear Francis,
The Weizmann Institute is at present evaluating its programme in biological sciences with a view to finding out what are the areas that require development, including those areas in which the Institute is at present not engaged. I have been asked to head a committee of Institute scientists that are looking into this question, so that we can approximate the space, manpower and budget that will be required in addition to our present facilities.
I know that you have had considerable experience in matters concerning the future development of biological sciences, and I would indeed be grateful if you could please let me have your opinion and any memorandum that you may have on this subject.
With many thanks for your help and kindest regards.
Yours sincerely,
Leo Sachs
