28th April, 1965.
Dear Vernon,
Two points I thought you would be interested to know:
1. The change in haemoglobin I is not from Lysine to Aspartic, but from Lysine to Glutamic. The error was discovered by a colleague of Lehmann's, after I had pointed out that it didn't fit the code. He also tells me that the change for haemoglobin J-Oxford is gly to asp (not gly to lys as erroneously given in the table I had). Thus all the 26 abnormal haemoglobins now fit the code.
2. Zachau, at Vienna, gave the sequence for part of the serine S-RNA as . . . UUIGAA U . . .
Now do you believe me?
F. H. C. Crick
