Dear Francis
Thanks for your note. Also my congratulations concerning Churchill -- All of us are quite pleased that again you will be near students!! Now I am reading exams and find frequent quotations from your lectures about the Dogma. Francois Gros is here and we are quite busy with ribosomes. both A.A. incorporation and RNA synthesis as revealed by pulse experiments -- also hopes of understanding T2 RNA. All of us will be here the week before the Gordon Conf. and look forward to your visit
see you soon
Jim [written next to in different handwriting, Watson]
