Dear George
Delighted to get your letter and to learn that you will be here this summer. I shall be away for the whole of May but hope to be back by June 15th, and plan to be around until the end of August, so there should be every opportunity for us to get together. Even though it may not be listed in "Who's Who", I know that your recreation is showing card tricks to pretty girls. I will do my best to arrange a suitable supply so that we can pursue our recreations together!
It is not quite true that I refused to write an article for the Britannica Yearbook. I have, in fact, written one, and even mentioned Kornberg's recent work, but I was not prepared to give it the puff they asked for.
Jim's book reminds me that if there is any scientist who should write the story of his life, it is you. It would be even better if nobody was allowed to correct your English.
F.H.C. Crick
