18 April 1969
Dear Dr. Shockley
Thank you for your letter of the 7th April and the enclosures, especially that concerning Dr. Arthur R. Jensen. If you by any chance have his long article in the winter issue of the Harvard Educational Review I would be most grateful for copy, as I do not know whether I can easily get one here.
As to my own position, I feel that I have already spoken out, and you are at liberty to quote me. But there is an old saying, "Every time a sheep ba-aa-s, it loses a bite", and it's time for me to take a few more bites.
Yours sincerely
Francis Crick
P.S. In the quotation from my talk in the Riverside Daily, the word "slow" should be "poor".
