Sat.
My dear Francis,
Thank you for your letter on the polypeptides.
I think you will be interested to know that our dark lady leaves us next week and much of the 3 dimensional data is already in our hands. I am now reasonably clear of other committments [sic] and have started up a general offensive on Nature's secret stronghold on all fronts: models, theoretical chemistry, and interpretation of data [ . . . ]line and comparative. At last the decks are clear and we can put all hands to the pumps!
It won't be long now.
Regards to all
yours ever
M.
P.S. may be in Cambridge next week.
