2 April 1969
Thank you for your letter of the 17th March, and the enclosures, all of which I have read. The UPI story about my talk was slightly garbled; but was essentially correct. I certainly think these problems are important and that they should be dealt with objectively. Your experience clearly shows that this is not easy.
At the moment we have a large new extension to our laboratory, and are, taking up research in scientific areas which are new to us. Consequently I have decided not to speak or write on these social problems until our new work is will launched. In a year or so I hope to take up these issues again.
Yours sincerely
F.H.C. Crick
