Dear Francis,
I include a m.s. which may reduce a 5 times 10 to the 9th power y. decoding time to ovey (sic!) a few hundred hours. There are also some hopes in making some conclusion by applying Poisson distribution test to Brenner's table. As you must have heard, RNATIE is in production. Soon you will get a chain letter (not branching chain) concerning the selection of one of 20 aa (or "amigos") for tie pin.
Best regards to the jolly old good England and to yourself
Yours Geo.
[written in a box alongside, P.S. Did you hear about Cricktick acid, Ycasine, ect??]
