Dear Dr. Nowacki:
I was very pleased to receive your interesting paper on the crystal structure of adamantane. I was also pleased to receive a few months ago some other papers of yours, for which I thank you.
Under separate cover we are sending a complete set of the papers from the Gates and Crellin Laboratories on the structure of crystals and gas molecules published during the years 1940 to the present. We are looking forward to carrying on researches in pure science with greater activity from now on.
I hope that it will be possible for you to visit Pasadena at some time. I am sure that you would find it interesting to travel through this country, and to take part for a while in the work at the California Institute of Technology. Perhaps some system of international exchange of scientists will be arranged, and I hope that you will try to take advantage of it.
