My dear Francis,
Thank you for your shoal of daily letters! I meant to ring you tonight and then realized you had no phone since moving. I will be up on Sat afternoon Geoffrey is staying behind as he has some things which have to be finished before we go to Brussels. It is very nice of you to offer to put him up.
L.H. is interested in not. pol and feels Boges mightn't be much use so maybe that is the best line.
I should have replied before
but was feeling lousy and thought I might be too depressing and should keep away from humanity (I feel allright [sic] today). Rosie's colloquium made me a bit sicker. God knows what will become of all this business. They talked for 1 3/4 hours non stop and she effectively refused to answer questions. They had a unit cell big enough to sit in (but nothing in it).
It would be nice to see the Markhams. He is certainly good company and I remember her as a nice person.
Its very nice of you to get Pauling paper and I will tell you all I can remember and scribble down from Rosie.
I would like to speak to Broad and get a blue print of an n.a. from him I will telephone before this gets to you. Tried telephoning tonight and they got all diff numbers and ended up with poor Ingram who very nicely offered to bring you a message. Sorry I have been so deplorably slow in replying I hope this hasn't been very much of a nuisance.
Special regards to Odile.
