Dear Dr. Hanson:
This answer to your letter of November 24 has been delayed in part by the difficulty in reaching a decision as to what to do and in part by my intense preoccupation with war work.
It seems clear to me that I myself and all of the other men here will be kept very busy with war work for at least another year, and that the most that we can do in our attack on the protein problem is to continue the work in immunochemistry and in serological genetics at about the same rate as at present. I accordingly believe that it would be most satisfactory if this were to be done, and the consideration of an expanded intensive program were to be postponed for about one year. I shall be glad to have your opinion on this point.
It would indeed be a pleasure to us if either you or Dr. Weaver could visit us in Pasadena.
