[on stationery from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, on post-it note 1.31.46]
I made the Boston train safely- as happens once on nearly every trip I make, someone else was occupying my space; the conductor put him out; he was in the wrong car. We are now in the Berkshires; there is about a food of snow on the trees & hills, & the little river is frozen over. The train is an hour late. We shall arrive at about 4.
John Edsall is on the train- in the same car. I have had two intersting talks with him. He says that sometimes he is homesick for Pasadena- that this year with us was the best of his life. Ronald Ferry is back at Winthrop; all but one of the student houses are to be open to civilians next month. I learned that John has a very high opinion of Jack Kirkwood.
Between trains I bought myself a very nice pair of black shoes. I left my old ones to be sent to Greece. Then, having about an hour left, I stopped at E.C Pauling's office (where I had stopped once before, finding him away), and learned that he died last winter. He bad two daughters, one in Boston and one, Mrs Donnelley, in Chicago. I telephoned Mrs Donnelley (who is listed as Mrs D. in the phone book). She spoke with an English or pseudo-English accent. She indicated that her father was one of the Hanoverian Paulings, and said that he had an uncle of two who had gone to California. She asked me to come out to house for a cup of tea, but I didn't have time to do so. Was Grandpa Pauling's father from Hanover?
I have been talking with John about the great need for medical research in the West. Everyone seems to agree on this point. Did I tell you that Wickmen[?], when he was in Pasadena last week, asked me to stop in New York to see Heffron[?], the head of the medical division of the Commonwealth Foundation?
We are still going through the little snow-covered wooded hills.
Love to you, and Petie, and Linda, and Crellie,
