Dear Francis,
I have recently declined to write for Britannica Yearbook on Science etc. an article on current disproval of the Einstein's general theory of relativity, and heard in this connection that you also do not want to write on Kornberg's [special characters, Greek letters phi and chi] 174 homunculus. Shall we organize the Antiencylopeda [sic] Club?
I am also enjoying glancing through Jim's psychedelic story in Atlantic Monthly . . . And all this in addition to Vietnam and Blackpower [sic] . . . . World is geting [sic] crazy! Well, if the ships will be still sailing across Atlantic Ocean this coming summer, we will be in Cambridge (Blue Boar) begining [sic] June 15th mostly for radioastro-nomicocosmologican purposes. Hope to see you during that visit.
Yours George
P.S. Looking up your adress [sic] in Who is Who, I noticed that your recreation is taking to pritty [sic] women. It is good.
