I am very touched that you should ask me to become an Associate of the Institute. I would like to accept but there is one
snag. About 18 months ago I gave up all travelling (except for very short distances for holidays) mainly because I find it
so difficult to cope with the time-shift, especially in travelling to California. If I stick to the rule I will not be able
to visit the Institute. If this is no objection to being an Associate I should be delighted to become one. On the other
hand, if you feel this is too much of an impediment I shall quite understand.
It was a great delight seeing you at Peter's wedding. Even though I am not travelling I hope we shall have the opportunity
of meeting again on this side of the Atlantic before too long.
